Love Your Park is a collaborative effort of the Department of Parks and Recreation, PHS/Philadelphia Green, Greater Philadelphia Cares, and park-friends groups throughout the city.

The monthly neighborhood street cleanups within Newbold are the Second Saturday of each month from March to November. More volunteers are needed. The first Newbold cleanup of the 2012 season is Saturday March 24th. We begin the cleanup of our residence blocks and then meet at Guerin Rec Center at 930am.

Guerin Rec is located at the corner of 16th and Jackson sts. We will have brooms, gloves and bags at Guerin but feel free to bring your own cleanup tools as well.

Cleanup dates will be altered to coincide with the Philadelphia city-wide cleanups. The first city-wide cleanup for 2012 is April 14th. 

Want to get involved? Come and join in the cleanup effort. And- spread the word to your neighbors!!
