Battle Ground’s 6th annual Parks Appreciation Day work party is set for Sat., April 21
BATTLE GROUND — Parks offer countless opportunities for connecting with nature, activities, family and friends. Battle Ground Parks & Recreation invites community members to celebrate parks the morning of Saturday, April 21 at the 6th Annual Parks Appreciation Day work party.
Volunteers, along with city staff, will gather from 9:00 a.m. to noon at two locations — Kiwanis Park and the Battle Ground Community Center — to give them a caring facelift just in time for the busy summer season. Clean up efforts will include litter pick up, raking and weeding flower beds and spreading bark dust.
“We are so appreciative of the volunteers who participate in this event,” said Battle Ground Parks and Recreation Director Debbi Hanson. “Our city parks are well loved.”
Individuals, families and groups are invited to participate. Children aged six and older are welcome and must be accompanied by an adult. Participants should dress for the weather as it is a rain or shine event. A limited number of tools will be supplied; participants are encouraged to bring work gloves and may also bring small tools, rakes, and even wheelbarrows.
Volunteer groups of six or more are asked to pre-register by contacting Battle Ground Parks & Recreation at (360) 342-5380 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Families and individuals may register on-site the day of the event.
The work party begins at 9 a.m. and concludes at noon. Refreshments will be provided. Kiwanis Park is located at 422 SW 2nd Avenue just a few blocks west of South Parkway; the Battle Ground Community Center is located at 912 East Main Street.
