ANDOVER — More than 160 employees from Enel Green Power North America's headquarters in Andover pitched in and helped clean up parks and playgrounds around the Merrimack Valley last month.

On Oct. 16, employees of the company that owns 90 power plants — including a hydroelectric facility at the Great Stone Dam in Lawrence — fanned out across the region where they joined volunteers from Groundwork Lawrence and other groups to clear debris from the Merrimack River, plant trees at Costello Park in Lawrence and clean up the Lowell National Historic Park near Francis Gate Park in Lowell.

For the second consecutive year, 60 Enel volunteers joined Groundwork Lawrence for the general cleanup of Costello Park. In anticipation of colder weather, they also harvested vegetables from the community garden.
