Show your pride in your park by volunteering for It’s My Park Day at Brentwood Park, Saturday, March 2nd, 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. This annual city-wide event is a production of Austin Parks Foundation in cooperation with the Austin Parks and Recreation Department.
Registration is limited to 50 people this year and only registered volunteers are eligible for the free, commemorative t-shirt and other goodies, so sign up soon!
Here’s what we’ll be working on at Brentwood Park:
1) Landscape around the relocated purple martin house.
2) Weed, trim and mulch the pool area beds.
3) Continue work on weeding bermuda grass away from the trees planted in 2010 that have been on irrigation.
4) Mulch trees in the southwest corner of the park around the tennis court area.
5) Volleyball court sand screening.
Remember to wear closed toed shoes and long pants, bring a water bottle, and dress appropriately for the weather. Bring work gloves if you have them. We will provide some tools, cotton gloves (for those who forget to bring gloves), and drinking water.
We rarely have enough tools to go around, especially wheelbarrows, so please bring your wheelbarrow, garden rake, pitchfork, and/or shovel marked with your name and phone number, so we can reunite tools with their owners should they become separated.
If you would like to bring a child, please carefully consider which project you choose. Children must be with a parent at all times.
In case of rain, projects will start one hour late. If rain persists, projects will begin at their original start time on Sunday, March 3rd.
