Keep Tyler Beautiful would like Tyler residents to help beautify community parks through restoration projects during Park Service Day on Saturday, September 18.

If you are interested in assisting with this project, volunteers are asked to arrive between 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. for registration at Woldert Park. The projects will include litter cleanups, painting park restrooms, replacing mulch at playgrounds, installing picnic tables, restoring flowerbeds and other various activities. During registration, you will be able to select the park location and project you would like to assist with. Park locations include Woldert Park, Glass Park, Glass Recreation Center, Fun Forest Park, Pollard Park and Gassaway Park.

Once the projects are completed, volunteers will be asked to return to Woldert Park for a complimentary lunch. Every September, Keep Tyler Beautiful hosts a Park Service Day event as a way for the community to give back and help beautify neighborhood parks. Hundreds of volunteers register and come out to take on beautification projects. These projects are made possible thanks to local sponsors each year.

As a resident, I like to take pride in my community. I strongly encourage you to participate in this project if you schedule allows the time. I will be transparent and say that projects like this did not make sense until I had my daughters and I started taking them to the park. I wanted it to be clean and safe for my daughters and other kids.

For more information or to pre-register, you can visit KeepTylerBeautiful.com or contact Keep Tyler Beautiful Community Coordinator Belen Casillas at (903) 531-1335.

Take a moment and look. Do you recognize any of them? Do you recognize their last names? Maybe they're a family friend, or the best friend of your daughter, or the daughter of a member of your church small group. They matter.
