After seven years of volunteering to help raise funds to restore Beverly Gardens Park, Friends of Beverly Gardens Park co-chairs Annette Saleh, Deborah Frank and Franny Rennie were honored by the Beverly Hills Recreation and Parks Commission. The honor came in tandem with a recent project accolade by the California Preservation Foundation for the multi-year rehabilitation. The 1.9-mile linear park runs along Santa Monica Boulevard from the Wilshire Electric Fountain at Wilshire to the Doheny Fountain at Doheny. The multi-million dollar restoration was ignited with a large donation by Steve Gordon and continued with his efforts to foster the Friends of Beverly Gardens Park. “We were so inspired by someone who on his own decided the park needed restoration. He wanted to inspire residents to be involved in the restoration of the park,” said Friends co-chair Franny Rennie.
