Philadelphians can spruce up their local parks next month by volunteering in the Love Your Park fall weekend clean-up.
The Parks & Recreation department is asking volunteers to grab rakes and shovels to pitch in for the annual event, which typically falls on the second weekend of November. Over 90 Philly parks will host cleaning sprees from Friday, Nov. 10, through Sunday, Nov. 12, at various times. All ages can participate, including children, but registration is required.
While priorities may vary by location, the clean-ups will involve collecting trash, bagging leaves for compost, pulling weeds and planting new flowers and trees. Tools and gloves will generally be provided, but check out the individual event pages for more details. Some lucky volunteers will even score donuts.
