APF Spring It's My Park Day 2019

Another Great It’s My Park Day at Patterson Park

So grateful for an incredible group of volunteers at another great It’s My Park Day on Saturday, March 7! We had neighbors, part of the McCallum high school football team, and a team from OJO Home spread 20 yards of mulch, plant 40 plants in the community garden’s pollinator garden, and more! So thankful for their hard work taking care of our park, and to Austin Parks Foundation for organizing another incredible It’s My Park Day!

It's My Park Day Spring 2017

It’s My Park Day is March 4th at Patterson Park

Join us on Saturday, March 4th for It’s My Park Day at Patterson Park! We’ll meet at 9am at a picnic table near Airport Blvd. and Schieffer Ave. for a family work day. This is an opportunity for the folks of all ages to volunteer. We will be mulching the large oak trees at the southeast corner of the park. If you have wheelbarrows or wagons, please bring them! We’ll have shovels, gloves, and mulch sleds. Kids with an accompanying adult are welcome, and we’ll have coffee, lemonade, breakfast tacos and muffins to fuel our volunteers!

Please register on the Austin Parks Foundation volunteer management page.

It’s My Park Day Kid Crew Takes Patterson by Storm

The It’s My Park Day Kid Crew met at Patterson on Saturday, March 5, and the morning exceeded all expectations! There were at least 18 families, a Boy Scout troop, a Maplewood teacher with 8 students, and a group of Cherrywood students from Lamar. Experienced Kid  Crew leader Sharon Yarborough was a pro at organizing everyone, and we all took a turn at picking up trash and mulching. The littlest ones worked on washing the playground. Thank you to all the wonderful neighbors who came out to care for our neighborhood park and show our youngest neighbors how to build community!
