The “City of Parks” needs volunteers to help clean up its prized green spaces. The Granite Shoals Parks Advisory Committee is hosting a workday at Bluebriar Park on Saturday, Jan. 7, starting at 9 a.m. The park is located at 100 N. Shorewood Drive.
Jobs include painting the pavilion, sanding down playground equipment, spreading mulch, and sprucing up the park in general. Bring your own equipment, if possible, including rakes, shovels, paintbrushes, rollers, and sandpaper.
This will be the first of many workdays to come since the Parks Advisory Committee acquired an adequate liability waiver for volunteers, which must be signed to participate in the cleanup. It absolves the city of responsibility in case of mishaps, damages, or injury.
While many of Granite Shoals’ 19 parks were beautified with volunteer work in the past, that slowed down when liability concerns were brought to the city’s attention.
