It Starts in Parks

We are  involved in a master plan for our parks and our City that will shape the vision of West Palm Beach for the next 30 years.  As part of this master plan, we are expanding our Volunteer Services program. We’ve already opened new opportunities for the public to participate, not just with Recreation but in all City departments. With that change alone, the people of West Palm Beach have made an amazing difference. 3,407 people gave 32,547 hours to clean-up communities, paint, shape our community gardens, assist in offices throughout the city and work at the library and police department. Based on the federal government value of those hours at $21.20 per hour, you, the volunteers, donated nearly $690,000 worth of services! Wow, we can’t thank you enough!

And remember, no matter what you have planned for the day, spending time outdoors, playing with children, or walking your dog…It Starts In Parks!

Thank you for your support,
Christine Thrower, Director
