It's My Park Day

It’s My Park Day

Come join “It’s My Park Day” on the morning of Saturday, March 7th! Neighbors from Dawson and surrounding neighborhoods will meet at Gillis Park with a group of students from Dawson Elementary to clean up the park together!

Copied from the City’s website:

“Our biggest city-wide volunteer event is It’s My Park Day, held the first Saturday of March. Each year, thousands of volunteers work to improve parks and greenbelts throughout the city.

In 2014, we had over 100 projects city-wide, over 3,000 volunteers, and over 10,000 hours of volunteer labor. That’s equivalent to 5 park maintenance employees working full-time for a whole year! All told, including labor, this one day represented an investment of over one quarter of a million dollars for Austin’s parks.”
