This year, we are kicking off our forth annual "I Love My Schenectady Parks Day." Schenectady's parks are a gem of the City and a key ingredient in what makes Schenectady a great place to live, work, and raise a family. We are looking to work with neighborhood groups and other community organizations to assist the City in identifying beautification needs at their respective parks, as well as disseminating information about the upcoming day to residents for volunteer support.
‘I Love My Park Day’ is a campaign started five years ago by the State of New York, to garner volunteer support in helping to cleanup, improve, and beautify state-owned parks across New York State. It is a day to celebrate and enhance our park resources, boost volunteerism, and raise the visibility of the entire park system. We are scheduling this event for Saturday May 5, 2018. We will provide all necessary supplies, though we encourage people to bring and wear gloves.
Please contact Floyd Slater at City Department of General Services to discuss the needs of your local park(s) and potential volunteer efforts. He can be reached at FSlater@SchenectadyNY.gov or at 518-209-2495.
