On the first Saturday of every month, City Park hosts Super Saturday, a community volunteer event. Check City Park’s Twitter, Facebook and calendar for upcoming Super Saturday dates but typically it’s the first Saturday of each month.
Many groups from the community, including high schools, colleges, churches, service groups, and individuals, attend the event.
Work assignments and tools are handed out at the Volunteer Center at 9:00am, and volunteers work until noon doing various tasks, including painting, pruning, raking, mulching, planting, and maintaining areas around City Park.
It’s a great way to meet people from all walks of life who share a common interest in the revitalization of the Park.
