"I like helping the Green Hats"

Israel is a local Californian from Sacramento. He recently started coming to Friendship Park. "I've been here since '95 before, but just for lunch. Once the park got more popular, I started coming during the day."

Israel started coming for a full day in June 2016. "When Jessica called me over, she showed me more on Ahern Dr. and I got to know more about the park. I started coming on June 18, 2016." Israel likes to hang out with friends and the Green Hats (Staff Members) because "it's funner."

When I asked him about his favorite things to do in the park he said, "I love playing BINGO and I've won a few times. I also like helping the Green Hats with different things like passing out water or sack lunches and helping with ice."
