Parks Appreciation Day

Saturday, April 27 (9:00am - 12:00pm)

Do something good for the earth! 

Participants are needed to spruce up local parks by trimming limbs, grooming grounds, combing beaches and planting more flowers and trees. This annual event draws thousands of volunteers in cities throughout Pierce County, each person lending a hand to keep parks beautiful and to do a good deed for their community.
