Aspinwall-area children will be collecting more than candy this Halloween, raising funds to add landscaping that was cut out of the plans for the Aspinwall Riverfront Park.

The borough distributed labels for kids to color and put on soup cans so they can collect change for the park during their trick-or-treat rounds. Funds will go toward the $800,000 effort to add landscaping to the park, which had its budget for flowers cut.

Coins will then be consolidated at the borough's Halloween Parade on Commercial Street from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday; local businesses will also have jars where kids can drop off their collections and everyone can make further donations over the next few weeks. Groundbreaking for the park is scheduled for Nov. 16, when residents will be invited to plant up to 2,000 flower bulbs purchased with the proceeds.
