Why: With our new playground, and unusually warm weather this year, the playground and surrounding park is getting littered with trash. With budget cuts, the Parks Department is unable to keep it picked up regularly. The flower beds haven’t been weeded since the Playground Build Day last July, so if you have some gardening tools you can pull weeds too. Let’s work together and have fun! All ages are welcome. We’ll provide some coffee and hot chocolate to warm you up. Please dress appropriately for the weather. Prizes will be awarded – the very last chance to own a Heart Delridge Tee Shirt!
