Fall It’s My Park Day  is Saturday, November 3rd

Our biggest city-wide volunteer event, It’s My Park Day, takes place the first Saturdays in March and November. Each year, thousands of volunteers work to improve parks and greenbelts throughout the city.

In Spring 2018 we had over 3,000 volunteers, and nearly 100 projects city-wide, putting in 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.

Get When You Give

This year, we’re partnering with restaurants and businesses across the city so you get more when you give. Wear your IMPD tee to any of our partner locations and get great givebacks. Check out these discounts and freebies!

Project registration for Fall It’s My Park Day opens in September. Check back soon!

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.

To become a sponsor and hear more about the levels and benefits for companies and individual donors please email development@austinparks.org
