Volunteers trying to revitalize Railroad Park

Volunteers came together Saturday to try and bring Railroad Park back to life. 



The Bronx-based organization Dreamyard worked with veterans, kids and the entire community to start the creation of a mural at the 161st Street park, which has been neglected for almost 30 years. 



The mural was prepped to be power-washed Saturday, and painting is set to officially start next week. 



Organizers say they hope the mural will be completed by the end of July.
