- North: Pleasant Valley Park, Hidden Valley Park, Englewood Park, Line Creek Park
- Central: Blue Valley Park, Case Park, Penn Valley Park, Kessler Park
- South: Swope Park, Minor Park
WHY: To help keep our parks beautiful and remove fireworks debris and other litter that might otherwise end up in our waterways.
HOW: If you need a bag or gloves, a limited supply will be available at Penn Valley Park, Swope Park Bandstand and Englewood Park from 8:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m. on Sunday. Please remember to safely distance. Volunteer for as long as you want and then leave your bag next to the trash receptacle for KC Parks crews to pick up. Be sure to take before and after photos and share them with the hashtag #KCParks. Thank you for helping keep KC Parks beautiful!
