Cleaning up Seth Low is a day in the park.

Dozens of high school students joined Assemblyman William Colton (D—Bensonhurst) Tuesday morning to help spruce up Bensonhurst’s Seth Low Park and sweep up Bay Parkway and Kings Highway, which have been blanketed by leaves and trash.

Several neighborhood youth groups, including the Our Lady of Grace Church Teen Group, United Chinese Association of Brooklyn Youth Club, and Midwood High School Key Club, sacrificed some fun in order to get down and dirty with Colton by removing neighborhood litter.

“There is no better civics lesson for our youth than to give back to their community by participating in this much needed cleanup effort,” said Assemblyman Colton. “It is a pleasure to bring these wonderful youth groups together in order to make our neighborhood cleaner and better to the benefit of all residents.”

Fortunately, the city supplied the groups with rakes, shovels and bags to assist in the cleanup effort, and prevent anyone from using their bare hands to grip the garbage.
