BRONX PARK EAST - Young Bronx residents are getting their hands dirty to help their community. 

The Bronx Park East Community Association is laying down mulch, planting tree guards and getting kids involved in its summer beautification camp.

The sprucing up is taking place throughout Bronx neighborhoods like Allerton, Pelham Parkway and Van Nest.

The Bronx Park East hopes the beautification camp will lead to a summer full of peace in the area.
