The Briarwood Action Network, a neighborhood group, hosted the semiannual “It’s My Park Day!” at Hoover-Manton Playgrounds in Briarwood over the weekend.

About 150 residents of Briarwood and other Queens neighborhoods painted benches and raked leaves around the park’s seating area on Manton Street between 83rd Avenue and Main Street.

The event, co-sponsored by the city Department of Parks and Recreation, featured arts and crafts, storytelling and live music.

The event is held once in the spring and again in the fall. During the fall, daffodils were planted near the seating area.

“It’s above all about recognizing and showing love and caring for our park,” said Aida Vernon, BAN’s president.
