Citizens Encouraged to Pitch In For It’s My Park Day
(DALLAS) – The City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department is asking citizens to beautify their favorite neighborhood parks for It’s My Park Day.
A citywide beautification effort, It’s My Park Day will bring community volunteers together to enhance the City’s park system from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 10. Individuals, homeowners’ associations, social and civic clubs, corporate volunteer teams, and Friends groups can organize and participate in beautification projects at a park of their choosing, then invite neighbors and friends to pitch in.
With assistance from the City’s park and recreation staff, volunteers can help with litter and debris pickup, graffiti removal, weeding, and flower and tree mulching and plantings. In addition to beautification projects, communities can make It’s My Park Day exciting for all ages by hosting a variety of free, family-friendly recreational activities and entertainment.
Individuals and groups interested in organizing or joining an It’s My Park Day project should sign up by Sept. 3 at http://itsmyparkdaydallas.eventbrite.com or call Dallas Park and Recreation at (214) 670-8400.
