Spring Park Cleanup

  • Lewis Park 305 Lewis Street Syracuse, NY, 13204 United States

Join the Secular & Social CNY Families and the CNY Humanists for our 3rd annual cleanup of Lewis Park! It's a great spot for all ages and abilities, with lots of space, a playground, and bathrooms on site.

The City Parks folks drop off tools for us to use, then pick up the trash and leaves when we're done. We show up, work for a couple of hours, have some donuts, coffee, and juice, and voila! The park looks great, and we've gotten fresh air and exercise.

This is a great event for kids. They usually start strong with the giant wooden tweezers that the city gives us to pick up litter, then eventually get bored and start playing on the playground. And every year they seem to find some cool insect, frog, or bird's nest while they're working.

**Please note that this event starts an hour earlier than it has in the past; we wanted to make sure that anyone planning to go to the Climate March downtown at 11 would be able to do both.**
