It’s My Park Day is always held the first Saturday of March. Each year, thousands of volunteers work to improve parks and greenbelts throughout the city.
In 2015, they had nearly 100 projects city-wide, 3,000 volunteers, and 10,000 hours of volunteer labor. That’s equivalent to 5 park maintenance employees working full-time for a whole year! All told, including labor, this one day represented an investment of over a quarter of a million dollars for Austin’s parks.
