This Saturday (June 13), the DC Department of Parks and Recreation will host its first "DPR Beautification Day" from 8 am to 12 noon. This citywide effort will “spruce up” DPR facilities and parks in preparation for summer through the combined effort of DPR, community organizations, and residents. DPR Beautification Day activities will consist of trash pick up, interior cleaning, and light landscaping. Kennedy Recreation Center, on Seventh Street between O and P Streets, is one of DPR's chosen sites for the effort.
Advance registration is not required; volunteer registration will take place on-site during DPR Beautification Day. For more information about DPR Beautification Day, please contact DPR's Office of Partnerships and Development at (202) 258-6021 or by email at DPRpartnerships@dc.gov.
