A member of Boy Scout Troop 4, Kyle said he wanted to find something to help the community and figured this would be an ideal choice.
Kyle, his mother and Mike Kelly, Kyle's Scoutmaster, met with Junior Mason, director of parks and recreation for the City of Hagerstown, at the project site.
"We walked around looking at the site and Mason made suggestions," Patricia Marshall said. One of those suggestions was to have a light that will shine on the flagpole in front of the building.
Overgrown plant material - 50 wheelbarrow loads - and lava rock were removed, fresh mulch applied and new plants put in. Kyle said the city furnished the plants and the tools for the project.
Kyle said his role was to be supervisor and direct his fellow troop members and other friends in the efforts.
Kelly, who has been a Scoutmaster for 10 years, said he has had experience with the City of Hagerstown and Washington County officials on Eagle Scout projects such as Kyle's.
"They both have stepped up a couple of times," Kelly said. "They are happy to have the free labor."
While the project won't complete his Eagle Scout requirements, it will advance his position.
"I'm really excited about this," Kyle said.
Kyle will be a 10th-grader this fall at Williamsport High School, where he plays tennis and basketball.
