Area residents invited to celebrate parks on Battle Ground’s 5th annual Park Appreciation Day

BATTLE GROUND — Parks offer countless opportunities for connecting with nature, activities, family, friends and neighbors. Join Battle Ground leaders in celebrating their community’s parks the morning of Sat., April 22 at the 5th Annual Park Appreciation Day work party; it is their way to celebrate Earth Day at the local level.

Volunteers, along with city staff, will gather from 9 a.m. to noon at two of the city’s most treasured parks, Kiwanis and Florence Robison-South, 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, cleaning play equipment and spreading bark dust or playground chips. Participants should dress for the weather as it is a rain or shine event.
