Volunteer for Love Your Park Fall Service Day on November 12

Parks are vital spaces in neighborhoods, providing the community with an outdoor area to gather, for children to play, for dogs to be walked and so much more.


To continue to keep these parks as beautiful and functional spaces, the community needs to get involved. On Saturday, November 12, Parks and Recreation is hosting their fall Love Your Park Day for the community to participate in cleanups and other activities.
