Esplanade Sweep

First Saturdays

Keep the Esplanade Beautiful presents the monthly Esplanade Sweep the first Saturday of each month.

The Esplanade, located on the west side of the street from Knob Hill to Miramar Park, is the crown jewel of Redondo Beach! Each of us that walks, runs, rides, or just sits along the Esplanade enjoying the view have a vested interest and responsibility to help maintain it. While we enjoy the Esplanade in different ways, perhaps with our friends and families, our dogs and bike riding clubs, some debris and wear and tear is inevitable, but it’s not just the city’s responsibility to clean up after us – we are all responsible for our environment.

The Keep the Esplanade Beautiful committee is reaching out to the community and asking you to come out every first Saturday for an hour, and join fellow residents in a team effort to “Help Keep the Esplanade Clean”.
