Community Beautification @ Seaside Heroes Park

Second Saturdays

Seaside-Heroes-Park-Community-Beautification-EventJoin volunteers at Seaside Heroes Park for the monthly Community Beautification Event the second Saturday of every month from 8 to 11 a.m.

All are welcome to get down and dirty and lend a hand cleaning, weeding, and dead heading – including groups or individuals who need community service hours.

Even though the park is small, it’s a huge job to keep it looking good. As of January 2018, there are over 900 work hours in this project, but once the entire park has received a once-over, it’s time to go back and start at the beginning. This is a labor of love and the organizers are immensely grateful to anyone who gives their time.
