It’s My Park Day is Saturday, March 5th

GroupPhotoWootenPark_smOur biggest city-wide volunteer event is It’s My Park Day, and is always held the first Saturday of March. Each year, thousands of volunteers work to improve parks and greenbelts throughout the city.

In 2015, we had nearly 100 projects city-wide, 3,000 volunteers, and 10,000 hours of volunteer labor. That’s equivalent to 5 park maintenance employees working full-time for a whole year! All told, including labor, this one day represented an investment of over a quarter of a million dollars for Austin’s parks.

Project registration is now closed! Have questions about your project? Check out our Project Leader FAQ’s for our basic answers, or email us at volunteer@austinparks.org.
Help us maintain and improve your local park by volunteering for one of our It’s My Park Day projects. Check back in February 2017 for details!
Interested in supporting It’s My Park Day? We recruit corporate sponsors to support this event, and many companies also contribute employees’ volunteer time. By pitching in to help with spring maintenance activities such as spreading mulch, planting trees, clearing trails, and painting benches, It’s My Park Day participants play a significant role in the management and upkeep of our parks. Many of our volunteers become committed stewards of our public spaces by adopting their park and participating in fundraising and park improvement projects throughout the year.
