The City of Akron, in partnership with Akron Parks Collaborative, Keep Akron Beautiful, and The Davey Tree Expert Company will host its third annual Akron Parks Week from May 10-16, 2021. The week will feature free events and volunteer opportunities at community park locations throughout the city.
 
Join the celebration by volunteering at one of our featured Akron Parks Week events at Schneider Park or Diamond Crystal Park! Residents may sign up for activities including family yoga and socially distant, small-group volunteer opportunities to help clean, paint, mulch, plant trees and beautify the parks.
 
We encourage volunteers to bring gloves, shovels, and gardening tools - and to label all items to avoid mix-ups. We want this to be a fun and safe event for everyone and ask that participants follow guidelines for social distancing. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available on-site for everyone's convenience.
 
The first 100 people to sign up for either event will receive a commemorative 2021 Akron Parks Week T-shirt. Families are welcome!
