It’s My Park! Day

Join a citywide effort to tidy up and support urban greenspaces, including Prospect Park. On It’s My Park! Day, May 16, volunteers will be all geared up with brooms, shovels, rakes, and trash grabbers. Come down and receive a free T−shirt and other goodies. Bring a friend.

Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., meet at the Wollman Rink in Prospect Park. The Wollman Rink is best accessed through the Parkside⁄Ocean avenues entrance or the Lincoln Road⁄Ocean Avenue entrance to the park.

Call 718−965−8960 for more information or visit⁄calenda­r⁄event­mypark.

Volunteer at Prospect Park Year−Round

Anyone can join the Prospect Park Volunteer Corps: individuals and families, students and retirees, friends and neighbors. Community and corporate groups are also encouraged to help the park by joining the Volunteer Corps.

The next volunteer information session will be held May 13 at 4 p.m. and May 27 at 6:30 p.m. in the Litchfield Villa conference room, 95 Prospect Park West between Fourth & Fifth streets.

Cash For Trash

Volunteering to clean up the park just got more rewarding. The Independence Community Foundation, a long−time Prospect Park supporter, has agreed to donate $10 for every bag of trash or plant debris collected by Volunteers before June 30. Sign up to be a volunteer now, and help keep Prospect Park beautiful for years to come. Go to⁄support­⁄volunte­ers or call 718−965−8960.
