Pitch In for the Parks

Come help us care for one of our city’s most precious resources — our neighborhood park!

Starting in May with It’s Your Park Day and running til it’s a bit too cold out (we managed to work in November last year), the Welles Park Advisory Council participates in Pitch In for the Parks, a citywide cleanup campaign sponsored by the Chicago Parks Foundation.

The foundation provides the tools and supplies and all you have to do is show up at 9 a.m. — it’s that easy! You may be surprised to discover that a morning spent with others caring for a public space is a gratifying and fulfilling experience.

Join us on the following dates this year and be sure to RSVP!

  • Saturday, May 22, 9 a.m.
  • Saturday, June 26, 9 a.m.
  • Saturday, July 24, 9 a.m.
  • Saturday, August 28, 9 a.m.
  • Saturday, September 25, 9 a.m.
  • Saturday, October 23, 9 a.m.
