Addison Park District - Park Pride

It’s time to roll up your sleeves and show your PARK PRIDE! Join hundreds of volunteers on Saturday, May 12 (9-12 pm) for a day spent preparing the parks for the season. All volunteers will be treated to an appreciation cookout in Community Park immediately following the event. The Spring RECYCLING EXTRAVAGANZA will be held once again in Community Park’s parking lot from 9 am – 12 pm. This is a drive-thru event so that you can drop off your wares at different stations.
