Briarwood Action Network will be hosting It’s My Park Day! next month.
The event will take place on Saturday, May 7, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Hoover Park on Manton Street. BAN members will paint, rake, clean and do general cleanup to prepare the park for the spring and summer. Participants are asked to dress appropriately for cleaning and painting.
There will be activities for kids, live jazz music and refreshments for volunteer workers. The ASPCA will also be on hand with information as well as animals available for adoption.
