Volunteer Spring Cleanup Set For April 23

A wooded trail in Veterans Memorial Park.

A community work party is planned to spruce up Veterans Memorial Park and the Civic Campus.


A Mountlake Terrace tradition, the Volunteer Spring Cleanup is moving this year from Ballinger Park into Town Center.


The event runs from 9 a.m. to noon April 23, with lunch to follow for volunteers. We’ll meet at the Civic Campus, 23204 58th Avenue West. It will be a great time to gather and share a meal afterward in the Jerry Smith Town Center Plaza, if weather permits.


Those attending as a group can register by contacting Parks and Facilities Superintendent Ken Courtmanch at, 425-776-1811.


A limited number of tools will be available to share. Participants are asked to bring their own rakes, weed pullers, and non-electric pruning tools. Tasks will include pruning, weeding, raking, picking up litter, and removing blackberry bushes and other invasive plants. Protective gloves and footwear are strongly encouraged.
