El Sol Brillante, Sr is a little park in the East Village which is part of the East Village Parks Conservancy. The park, located on the south side of East 12th Street between Avenues A and B, is a lush, well-tended oasis in an otherwise harsh environment. A wonderful wrought iron fence surrounds the premises with a whimsical structure that bespeaks the delight held within.
If you are interesting in helping care for the garden’s grounds, there are regularly scheduled volunteer gardening days. For more information about the East Village Parks Conservancy and the many green spaces which the organization is protecting and taking delight in, contact them directly.
