Unfortunately, we had to make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Parks Appreciation Day scheduled on April 25, 2020. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to support efforts to contain COVID-19 and protect the health of our community. We look forward to seeing everyone next year.
Saturday, 2021 Date TBD
9 a.m. - 12 noon
Great parks and programs help build stronger community, connecting individuals, families and groups through the power of play. Parks provide a place to keep kids active and off the streets. Celebrate Earth Day, Arbor Day, National Parks Week and your local parks in one fun event.
Be part of a major countywide effort with nearly 2,000 other people working in their local parks at the same time.
Volunteers are encouraged to carpool to the sites they choose. There is no need to pre-register. Just simply show up, check in with the site leader and start working. Come prepared with gloves, trimmers, rakes, yard tools and appropriate clothing to cut, pull, plant and haul during the three hour time frame.
