Green Up Day 2013 in Leddy Park was a huge success. Dave Hartnett provided a great spread of refreshments and the sunny Spring day helped bring out a record number of attendees  at the event.  By our count, at least 30 people joined us in Leddy Park on May 4th to pick up litter and trash that accumulated in the park and on the beach over the winter.  The park looks great!

Fall Cleanup and Picnic

Friends of Leddy Park will be holding a park cleanup on Saturday October 29 from 9:00AM to 11:00AM to pick up any litter remaining from the heavy use the park gets through the Summer and Fall. We will meet in the parking lot near the Tennis Courts at 9:00AM – trash bags and gloves will be provided.

Weather permitting, we will grill hot dogs and hamburgers immediately afterward and have lunch in the picnic area behind the Arena.

Please come join us and help keep Leddy Park clean and litter free.

RSVPs encouraged to info@friendsofleddypark.org
