Trash Grab Tuesday in East Fairmount Park

Join us for a trash cleanup in  East Fairmount Park.


Tuesday, June 29, 2021


5:30pm - 7:00pm

Join us for a cleanup in Fairmount Park – a historic, beautiful, and well-loved community gathering space. We cleaned up in this area last week, but there is a lot more work to do! We will focus on Diamond Drive, which leads into the park, and on 33rd St, which runs along the reservoir and is a gateway for the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood.

What to Wear & Bring
Please wear closed-toe shoes and bring a reusable water bottle to keep yourself hydrated. We will provide jugs of water so you can refill.

Meet-Up Spot, Parking, Travel
-Meet at the picnic tables in front of Mander Recreation Center at 33rd St & Diamond Drive.
-Parking is available along 33rd Street as well as on Diamond Drive.
-Bus 32 runs along 33rd St, and several other buses stop at the 33rd & Dauphin loop.
-Please be extremely careful if biking or walking in this area – traffic patterns are a bit confusing and the bike lanes are not in good shape.

Other Details
-Please bring a mask (we will have extras available)
-We will provide gloves and all the necessary tools, but feel free to bring your own
-We will provide bug spray, sunblock, snacks, and jug of water
