Our next series of It's My Park Day events will kick off on May 4, 2013, with community-led service opportunities and free events throughout the month. In total, nearly 200 community parks groups will coordinate and lead It’s My Park Day events at 150 parks this spring.
How does It's My Park Day work?Partnerships for Parks invites dedicated community groups to organize It's My Park Day volunteer projects and free cultural events in their neighborhood parks. Volunteer activities range from horticulture to painting projects, along with a variety of free events, including kayaking, dance performance, and much, much more!

It's My Park Day is a great opportunity to meet local park groups that need year-round help from caring neighbors like you!
