Volunteer In the Park

by Susan Muehlfelder
  • We are currently actively engaged in cutting back the invasive Bush Honeysuckle and Wintercreeper that has taken over the park and welcome all helpers, with and without tools. We generally meet in the Park at 8:00am on most Saturdays, with bigger spring and fall work days getting more promotion and attendance. See Events > Work in the Park for examples.

  • An example: Roanoke Park's new playgrounds are the result of a coordinated effort led by park neighbors Rachel Porter and Lindsay Severns involving key contributions from Hufft Projects, the Make it Right Foundation and many interested neighbors.

  • And since we're not All Work, there will be social events happening in the Park where neighbors from the Park's surrounding neighborhoods can meet. The Park is where the neighborhoods of Roanoke, Volker, Valentine and Coleman Highlands come together.
