Volunteers and City staff pull together for Nanaimo's parks

Recently, City of Nanaimo staff and community volunteers worked together to clean up two of Nanaimo's parks as part of the Partners in Parks Program.

City staff and students from the Dover Bay Secondary School Eco Club worked together to remove ivy in Orchard Circle Park 2. Removing ivy from trees is important to preserve the long term health of our Urban Forest.

Over in Barsby Park, Park Ambassador Diana Kirsh coordinated a clean up. City staff and community volunteers worked together to pick up over 1,000 kg of garbage. More than 40 volunteers from across the city participated in this clean up.

City staff provide training and tools to community volunteers interested in environmental restoration work in Nanaimo's parks and natural areas.

"The Partners in Parks program is really a wonderful way for residents to show their community spirit and help improve Nanaimo parks."  -  Councillor Ian Thorpe
