Local Business Owner To Host Akron's First "Our City, Our Parks" Event
In the spirit of Keep Akron Beautiful Month and Earth Day, Shaw, owner of Perfection Lawn Care and Landscaping, will be organizing Our City, Our Parks, a city-wide cleanup day for Akron and the first event of its kind, on Sunday, April 21, 2013.
“The goal is to encourage everyone, from organizers and participants to on-lookers and those passing by, to see the gem that is hidden in our parks and playgrounds.” Shaw said. “We want to inspire them to take pride in their neighborhood parks and do what they can to keep them clean and beautiful.”
Volunteers from various communities will participate in the cleanup. Parks to be included are: Hawkins Park, Morgan Park, Perkins Woods Park, Prentiss Park and Summit Lake.
Volunteers will pick up trash and debris from parks, playgrounds and basketball courts, remove unhealthy weeds, apply mulch, clean sliding boards, and sanitize handles and various surfaces on playground equipment.
