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
