Owner of Hollywood Landscaping Commended in Rose Valley for Pew Park Volunteer Work
John Kelley, owner of Hollywood Landscaping, has been volunteering his time and skill keeping Rose valley’s Pew Park looking good. Recently, the borough named a day after him, writes Leslie Krowchenko for the Daily Times.
Mayor Tim Plummer proclaimed Oct. 21, 2020 as John Kelley Day. Kelley received a commendation at a short ceremony in the park located near the Moylan-Rose Valley station.
The .32-acre park was part of the estate of John G. Pew, vice president of the Sun Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Company in Chester. It was dedicated to the borough in 1933.
The Gardeners of Rose Valley have been working with Kelley to turn Pew Park into a Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Community Garden award winner.
Kelley works on the park March through October at no cost to the borough.
The grass is mowed, there are spring cleanup and mulch goes around the shrubs and flower beds. In the fall, the lawn is aerated and seeded.
“It is a pleasure to do this – I can’t think of a better place to spend my time,” Kelley said. “I come by here a lot and it makes me smile each time.”
