Spring Clean Up April 27, 2019 9 to noon
(with ice cream from 12 to 2!)

Spring is finally here and Friendship (“Turtle”) Park needs some love! The Friends of Friendship Park will host a community cleanup and spring beautification day on Saturday, April 27 from 9 to noon at the park, located on the corner of 45th and Van Ness Streets. We’ll pick up trash, collect broken toys, clean up the landscaping and replace mulch and sand where necessary. Please bring your own rake! Coffee and bagels will be provided to volunteers. Stick around after the clean up to enjoy some ice cream, provided by Friends of Friendship Park from 12 to 2pm. If you’re unable to join us on 4/27, you can still help to keep our park beautiful throughout the year by picking up trash when you see it, discarding any broken toys and reporting facilities-related issues to staff at Friendship Recreation Center. Find additional info on our facebook page, on our website ( or by reaching out to a member of the FOFP Board. We hope to see you at the Park on April 27!
