We had a HUGE day at the park today for “It’s My Park Day”! A BIG Thanks to Erik Harris (MNA’s Park Chair) for all the hours he put into the event and for the passion you have for our park! Thanks also to Austin Parks Foundation, along with all those that came out today and helped us give Balcones Park a much needed facelift!
We had around 150 volunteers working an average of 2+ hours! We mulched countless trees, picked up trash, created a berm at the bathrooms, upgraded the bike racks, created washer pits, leveled bball court, reclaimed playground pea gravel, weeded the pool’s beds, and much more! Thanks to Erik and all of the volunteers, including Cub Scout Pack 90, Den 1 Troop and Troop 1446, that gave back to our forgotten park today! Thanks also to David at Home Depot for the donation of play sand.
We are off to a great start for our volunteer hour requirements to earn our $200,000. Now if we can just knock out that $15,000 cash match. Thanks all!
