It’s My Park Day! Saturday March 5, 2016

It’s My Park Day, the annual park cleanup and landscaping event sponsored by the Austin Parks Foundation, is scheduled for Saturday, March 5, 2016. Friends, neighbors, and volunteers from around the Hyde Park area are invited to join in the activities at Shipe Park, 44th Street and Avenue F, from 9 am to noon. This is a wonderful community event and a great way to get to know your neighbors through community service!

The Friends of Shipe Park, who organize the event annually for Shipe Park, are looking for hard-working volunteers who are willing to roll up their sleeves and get dirty for the benefit of the park! Look forward to aerating soil, adding mulch around trees, removing invasive plants, removing leaves from the pool area, aerating and fertilizing the field, spiffing up the play-scape, and generally making the park beautiful.

Jack and Jill Nokes, Alison Young, Lisa Harris, Mark Fishman, and Adam Wilson are this year’s organizers. Lisa Harris is the contact person for information. To register for the event, go to www.givepulse.com.

The Austin Parks Foundation is a non-profit organization devoted to building partnerships to develop and maintain parks, trails, and open spaces in Austin.
