Councilman James encourages volunteers to get Central Park cleaned up for spring on Saturday, April 11th

April 3, 2015

Louisville – One of Old Louisville’s nicest attractions for young and old alike is Central Park and it’s time to get the park ready for warmer weather and fun. On Saturday April 11th, volunteers will get the park ready for spring and summer as part of the Community-wide Brightside Cleanup beginning at 8:30am.

          “This is one of many ways District 6 is planning as part of our contribution to the Mayor’s Give – A – Day of Service. It will be a great day and it’s a great reason to get out and join with others to take pride in our community,” says Councilman David James (D-6).

          Volunteers will meet at the Old Louisville Information Center and then fan out through Central Park cleaning up trash and garbage.

          Brightside will provide bags, rakes and gloves. However, if you can bring any extra tools to help out it would be appreciated. Following the cleanup lunch will be provided.

          “Central Park is just one of many projects we have planned and I know there are many groups who will spend time to make their neighborhoods a nicer, cleaner place to live,” says James. “If you can, take a few hours on Saturday to find a group of volunteers in your neighborhood. Giving back to your Community is what the Mayor’s Give – A – Day of Service is all about.”

Joining Councilman James as sponsors of the Cleanup are the Old Louisville neighborhood Council, Brightside, Metro Parks and the Olmsted Parks Conservancy
