Fair Park Update - April, 2012
On Saturday, March 31, 2012, fifty groups comprised of more than 800 volunteers will spread out over 45 Dallas park sites from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. for It’s My Park Day where individuals, homeowners’ associations, social and civic clubs, corporate volunteer teams, and Friends groups will help clean up and beautify city parks.
The City of Dallas Park and Recreation Board and Park and Recreation Department will be recognizing the It’s My Park Day participants at a Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony immediately following the beautification efforts where Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Pauline Medrano will present a special proclamation. The recognition ceremony is set to begin at 11:45 a.m. at the Bachman Lake Pavilion, 3500 Northwest Highway, Dallas.
It’s My Park Day is a citywide beautification initiative to bring community volunteers together to enhance the City’s parks system. Dallas hosted its first It’s My Park Day in March 2011 to mobilize citizens to address specific needs in their neighborhood parks and since that time, volunteer participation has more than doubled.
Here at Fair Park we are fortunate to have a steady stream of volunteers year-round assisting us take care of plant life and water quality in the Lagoon, providing docent services at any one of our museums, serving on a board of directors and with numerous other programs and services. We are so thankful for each of you who not only give of your time, but also contribute to our collective success in maintaining our great national historic landmark and enriching the experience of the millions of patrons that visit Fair Park each year.
