Help beauty Richmond's downtown park on Saturday
Community Green Space in downtown Richmond (Harbour Way and Macdonald Avenue).

The time of year has come again to spruce up Richmond’s downtown park in preparation for summer.

The 3rd annual Spring Clean-Up and Chess in the Park is set for Saturday, June 8, at the Community Green Space in downtown Richmond (Harbour Way and Macdonald Avenue).

The two-part event hosted by the Richmond Main Street Initiative and West Coast Chess Alliance has volunteers helping to spruce of the park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., followed by chess play opportunities for all ages from noon till 1 p.m. Lunch will be served from noon till 1 p.m.
 
Beautification activities will include weeding (manual & mechanized), pruning, debris pick-up, refreshing planters, and other light gardening work.
 
Clean-up efforts will support an ongoing beautification effort downtown and prep for upcoming summer events such as the Healthy Village Festival on June 29.

 Individuals interested in volunteering for the clean-up are encouraged to sign-up online at www.richmondmainstreet.org/volunteer-sign-up. Walk-ins are welcome, and community service hours will be honored. Tools and supplies will be provided, though volunteers are welcome to bring their own.
