Largo celebrates renovated green space at Bayhead Ponds Park

By Julianna A. Torres

LARGO – Bayhead Ponds Park turned out nicer than Largo Middle School student Dylan Boniface said he first imagined it would.

Boniface and his fellow classmates were thanked for their part in the renovation of the park, as the city of Largo celebrated its grand opening Feb. 28.

It was Dylan’s idea to involve his 4H club, which cleaned it up from kayaks in November.

“They went out and picked up thousands and thousands of bottles and pieces of trash out of the actual lake. It’s a whole lot more beautiful because of them,” Parks Superintendent Greg Brown said during the ceremony.

Dylan said he first noticed the ponds while attending summer camp at the Bayhead Complex.
