Volunteers Needed for Spring Cleaning, Mulching, and Bench Maintenance
On Saturday, April 16, from 9 AM until 1 PM, we will participate in a city-wide day of park cleanup and maintenance. We need volunteers to clean up the peripheral areas of the park and get things ready for spring. We will also be placing mulch around tree bases, beginning with the trees in the area of the Shuffleboard Court at 45th and Chester. If we have enough volunteers, and the weather is cooperating, we will also put a coat of sealant on park benches that are beginning to deteriorate.
This event is co-sponsored by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation. Volunteers should come to the shed area at 45th and Kingsessing for their work assignments. We will provide tools, but if you have gardening gloves, trowels, or a rake please bring them with you. The Friends of Clark Park will provide water and light refreshments throughout the event.
