Volunteers Gather May 14 for Parks Cleanup Day


On Saturday, May 14 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. families, friends and neighbors are invited to help clean up the beautiful parks and public spaces in the city.

Each May, Mountlake Terrace marks the beginning of spring with an event to provide residents an opportunity to give back to their community by cleaning up city parks and facilities.

Volunteers should meet at the Terrace Park School Parking lot, 5409 228th Street SW, at 9 a.m. in comfortable work clothes, with gloves and tools in hand, to get their assignment. Individuals, families, and service groups can help rake, paint and pick up brush at a nearby city park or facility.

Groups should contact Parks and Facilities Superintendent Ken Courtmanch at (425) 776-1811 to register in advance. Following the work party, the City Council will host a barbecue for volunteers. Please come and join the fun – rain or shine.

For more information about these events, please call Ken Courtmanch at (425) 776-1811 or access the City’s website at cityofmlt.com.
