Riverside Park Volunteers at Tiemann Place

In early 1990, under the Riverside Park Fund's supervision, a local resident initiated a project aiming to restore and improve the section of Riverside Park at Tiemann Place, which had been abandoned by the Parks Department. Yoshiko Scholz who joined the project in the fall of 1995 has been leading it for the last 11 years. Riverside Park Tiemann Place Volunteers is a volunteer group of 14 core people with additional volunteers as needed. Its mission is to maintain, restore, and renovate Riverside Park at Tiemann Place: the area between 125th street (St. Claire Place) and International House on East Riverside Drive (approximately 4 acres).
