THE BRONX - Volunteers came together Saturday to try and bring Railroad Park back to life. 

The Bronx-based organization Dreamyard worked with veterans, kids and the entire community to start the creation of a mural at the 161st Street park, which has been neglected for almost 30 years. 

The mural was prepped to be power-washed Saturday, and painting is set to officially start next week. 

Organizers say they hope the mural will be completed by the end of July.
