It’s My Park Day – Fall is Saturday, November 4th

GroupPhotoWootenPark_smOur biggest city-wide volunteer event, It’s My Park Day, has expanded to a Spring and Fall event! Each year, thousands of volunteers work to improve parks and greenbelts throughout the city.

In the spring we had over 3,200 volunteers, and nearly 100 projects city-wide, putting in over 10,000 hours of labor. That’s equivalent to 7 park maintenance employees working full-time for a whole year! All told, including labor, this one day represented an investment of over a quarter of a million dollars for Austin’s parks.

Project registration for IMPD Spring begins in January. Check back soon for more details!

Interested in supporting It’s My Park Day? We recruit corporate sponsors to support this event, and many companies also contribute employees’ volunteer time. By pitching in to help with spring maintenance activities such as spreading mulch, planting trees, clearing trails, and painting benches, It’s My Park Day participants play a significant role in the management and upkeep of our parks. Many of our volunteers become committed stewards of our public spaces by adopting their park and participating in fundraising and park improvement projects throughout the year.
