Save the date for It’s My Park Day
Thursday, October 21, 2021 by Tai Moses
The Austin Parks Foundation’s citywide volunteer extravaganza, It’s My Park Day, is taking place on Saturday, Nov. 6 as a hybrid version of itself in order to comply with public health guidelines. The number of volunteers for each project will be capped at 25 and all participants will be required to wear face masks. As with last year, there will be virtual activities for those unable to participate in person. Foundation CEO Colin Wallis explained, “We’re grateful to bring back the event this fall in a safe way that allows for both necessary park improvements as well as communal gathering.” Some of this year’s projects include placing a Veterans Day flag at Austin Memorial Cemetery, breaking ground at North Oaks Garden, the Pillars Project at Rosewood Park and Craft Day & Public Art visioning at Georgian Acres.
