It's My Park Day: Saturday, May 17
Please join PUPS as we do a spring clean up of Fort Greene Park the morning of Saturday, May 17 (rain date Sunday, May 18). Clean-up starts at 8:00 am and we hope to be finished by 10:00 am. The Parks Department will supply shovels and dirt for filling holes. Please bring your own bags from home for picking up trash and dog waste.
Check in with PUPS at the Visitor Station near the monument around 8:00 am. We need the dog community to come out and show we care about Fort Greene Park! See you there!
