THE City of Surrey wants residents to help take care of their favourite park through the summer Park Clean-up program.
“Surrey parks are seeing record visitors already this year, and we are encouraging residents to help us keep these spaces clean for everyone to enjoy,” said Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum on Wednesday. “If we all do our part, we can help keep Surrey clean, green and beautiful.”
The first Park Clean-up of the summer will take place at Blackie Spit Park from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on June 28. Staff will be onsite with litter picking equipment available to participants.
The Park Clean-up Program will run until September 29 on Mondays and Wednesdays, with morning, afternoon, and evening time slots available. Pre-registration is required through your My Impact Page volunteer account. Participants can register for a time slot, and pick-up equipment on arrival. Training will be provided, and no experience is necessary. All ages are welcome.
The Park Clean-up Program was established in 2019 and has been updated this year to incorporate COVID-19 safety measures.
