Parks in the City of Battle Ground offer countless opportunities for connecting with nature, activities, family, friends and neighbors. Celebrate the community’s parks the morning of Saturday, April 23 at the 4th Annual Park Appreciation Day work party.
Volunteers, along with city staff, will gather starting at 9:00 AM at two of the city’s most treasured parks, Kiwanis and Florence Robison, 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.
“We are so appreciative of the volunteers who participate in this event,” said Debbi Hanson, Battle Ground Parks and Recreation Director, “Battle Ground has a strong sense of community and our parks are well loved.”
Individuals, families and groups are invited to participate. Children aged six and older are welcome with an adult. We ask that pets, however, remain home. Volunteer groups of six or more are encouraged to pre-register by calling 360-342-5380, by emailing [email protected], or by completing a form available at cityofbg.org/ParksDay. Families and individuals are welcome to register but may also just show up at either of the parks.
The event begins at 9:00 am and concludes at 12:00 noon. Refreshments will be provided. Kiwanis Park is located at 422 SW 2nd Avenue just a few blocks west of South Parkway. Florence Robison – South Park is located at 1900 NW 9th St just a few blocks east of NW 20th Avenue.
