The new fence at La Plaza is officially complete
It's official: The new fence is complete at La Plaza Cultural on Avenue C and Ninth Street...
The community garden/green space has been closed to the public since the spring for the fence work.
An official grand reopening will be announced soon.
The previous chain-link fence was sagging in spots and in need of repair. Winter Flowers, handmade sculptures from discarded materials that Rolando Politi started creating in 2000, lined the top of the fence. The collection had grown to nearly 250. Not sure if any of those might return.

Meanwhile, La Plaza volunteers will be holding onsite member registration, orientation and dues payment from 1-4 on Saturday and Sunday if you're interested in being part of the garden.
