It’s My Park Day: Saturday March 1, 2014

Annual Effort to Improve Shipe Park

Saturday, March 1st is “It’s My Park Day” at Shipe Park (and dozens of other parks throughout the City of Austin).  IMPD is the Austin Parks Foundation’s premier annual event which provides the framework and support for a day of community service to improve Austin’s parks and green spaces.

Expecting over 100 neighborhood volunteers and a contingent of workers from the Austin Parks & Recreation Department, participants will spend their time at many of the following activities – spread dillo dirt in the open field area and seed with grass, aerate the trees, spread mulch, remove graffiti, paint benches, trashcans, picnic tables and reflecting poles, remove invasive species from the the creek, receive a free t-shirt, listen to live music, and a whole lot more.


Once again, our hosts this year, Rhonda & Phillip Baird, would love to hear from you if you are interested in being a team leader. You can email Rhonda at

Visit the Austin Parks Foundation website to sign up for It’s My Park Day (It’s Shipe Park Day).   Volunteer registration begins on February 10th.

Hope to see y’all there
