    From Cincy Parks:

    "Start the new year with a commitment to serve! Monday, January 18, times listed by location

    For years, MLK Day has been referred to as "A day on, not a day off." If you are inspired to make a difference in your community, Cincinnati Parks has opportunities to get out and serve!

    Cincinnati Parks will have several service sites in community parks. Help us maintain safe, clean & beautiful parks for communities throughout the city, look for the location closest to your neighborhood.

    Volunteers should be prepared for the weather (lightweight clothing) and wear long pants and long sleeves to protect against thorns and possible poison ivy encounters. Required: Close-toed shoes, face covering, work gloves (if you own them) and a refillable water bottle. There will be a limited number of work gloves available to borrow.

    Regarding Covid-19:

    In efforts to stop the spread, for the safety of our staff, volunteers and community please consider the following guidelines:
