Park Clean-Up’s

FPCA members hold a monthly 'Park Clean-up' on the first Saturday of every month (April through November) which is open to all (Association members, Friends, etc).

  • ​​​It’s a fun activity with plenty of social time, FPCA provides all the materials (bags and pickers) to clean-up litter in the park
  • The City grades the Park for cleanliness on an unannounced Monday of the month.
  • Under the The City of Alexandria 'Adopt-A-Park' program (April to November) FPCA receives a percentage of grant money based on our monthly park cleanliness grades.
  • The the funds received from the City will in turn be spent on our beautification efforts in the park

The ‘park clean-up’ runs from 9-10am and we meet in the park. Please note, in case of inclement weather, FPCA will send a cancellation notice to all FPCA members around 8 a.m. the morning of the clean-up.

If you can’t attend the clean-up but perform a clean-up on your own, please send an email to [email protected] with the volunteer(s) name, date of the clean-up and duration (15 minutes counts as a clean-up).

In addition any litter-picking on Sunday evenings or Monday mornings will be particularly helpful because the park will be inspected on an unannounced Monday morning.
