The Chicago Parks Foundation is hosting “It’s Your Park Day” on Saturday, June 18, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Volunteers will help clean local parks by mulching trees, replacing fiber on playgrounds, and cleaning green spaces. More than 300 volunteers helped get 15 parks ready for summer in 2015.
As of today, Indian Boundary Park is the only 50th Ward park registered to take part in the clean-up.
Tools and supplies will be provided by Home Depot. Volunteers will receive It’s Your Park Day T-shirts, KIND snacks, and water as well as the satisfaction of taking care of our community’s green spaces.
According to the Foundation, only the park manager or park advisory council can register a park for the event, so if your park isn’t registered please contact the appropriate people and recruit community members to the cause.
