North Bend Parks Commission cleans up EJ Roberts Park

Members of the North Bend Parks Commission held a work partyin October to clean up E.J. Roberts Park through the City’s Adopt-a-Park Program.

The Parks Commission collectively provided 12 hours of service during the day, weeding flower beds and clearing blackberries from the tennis courts and habitat restoration area on the east side of the park.  They also held a work party earlier this year, painting benches, picnic tables, garbage can surrounds, and play equipment. The park is looking really good, thanks to these generous volunteers.

The Adopt-a-Park Program is an opportunity for individuals or community groups to engage in the community to beautify public parks and trails.  If you have a Boy Scout or Girl Scout troop, youth group, service organization, or business looking for opportunities for community service, or just a good way to have some fun making a difference, consider adopting a park or trail through the North Bend Adopt-a-Park Program.

The Adopt-a-Park Program information and application packet is available on the city’s website at http://northbendwa.gov, under Forms/Applications.  For more information, contact Senior Planner Mike McCarty at (425) 888-7649 or at mmccarty@northbendwa.gov.
