More Than 300 Volunteers To Clean Up One of Oldest Parks in San Francisco

Friday, May 6, 2011

San Francisco, CA—The Department of Public Works (DPW), California Department of Transportation (Caltrans),the Recreation and Park Department (RPD), and the McKinley Square Park Foundation (MSPF) are partnering to support a Community Clean Team volunteer day of service to benefit McKinley Square and the surrounding open space on Monday, May 9th starting at 8:00-12:30pm.

Volunteers will beautify open areas, gardens, and the park by removing litter and debris from the sidewalk and streets as well as much needed weeding. The work will also include a sand replenishment project at the children’s play areas located at McKinley Square—one of the oldest parks in San Francisco. More than 300 volunteers from SuccessFactors, a software firm, will be supporting this effort as a part of their Day of Service.

DPW is responsible for the care and maintenance of San Francisco’s streets and much of its infrastructure. The department cleans and resurfaces streets; plants and maintains City street trees; designs, constructs and maintains city-owned facilities; inspects streets and sidewalks; constructs curb ramps; removes graffiti from public property; and partners with the diverse neighborhoods in San Francisco to provide stellar cleaning and greening services.
