Previously a dumping ground and undesirable passage for local neighbors, Kenny Alley is now adorned by a beautiful mural led by Matt Christensen, local art teacher and muralist.  Dumping has substantially decreased since the addition of this new mural.

Vertical Garden

Previously graffiti prone and unkempt, the northern wall of Kenny Alley was cold and desolate.  Volunteers and local contractor Marta Ayala installed a new fence, mural and vertical rain gutter garden with drought-tolerant flowering succulents.

Mountain Mural

The mountain mural was extended to the south wall, which was adorned with five beautiful Italian Cypress trees and river rock.  The mural and landscaping flank the stairs which will hold the new "Waterfall" mosaic and new tread tiles.
