from Volunteer New York! and the City of New Rochelle Parks and Recreation Department:
Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, April 25 will be a weekend of service, with several dozen park beautification projects planned at eleven neighborhood and waterfront sites.
Parks Clean-up Weekend is open to all community members. Depending on the site, volunteers will have the opportunity to support beach clean-up, maintain our woodlands and trails, weed playgrounds, refresh picnic tables and benches, and even restore some shared spaces, including the pavilion and bocci ball court at Neptune Park- all in addition to overall trash and debris cleanup. Each park project will only take place once on either Saturday or Sunday. Residents are encouraged to support the park in their neighborhood or one that they enjoy visiting. See parks list and cleanup schedule below.
Pre-registration is required for all sites and can be completed online at volunteernewyork.org/newrochelle or by calling 914-227-9317 for more info about registration.
Volunteer New York! Executive Director Jeanette Gisbert said, “Local parks have provided respite for communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. I’m proud of the partnership Volunteer New York! has with the City New Rochelle to harness people power, volunteers, to keep these spaces green, clean, and accessible for all to continue to enjoy.”
