If you have ever been to an event at Steele Indian School Park, you know that it takes a lot of effort to pull off. All those people at the 4th of July festivities? And the countless picnics and games of touch football? They leave behind a lot of trash and a wear and tear on the park.

Steele Indian School Park

Good thing we have organizations out there looking to help. The Phoenix Community Alliance, Hands on Greater Phoenix (which graciously is furnishing all the equipment) and the James Cox Foundation are sponsoring the sequel to the Adopt-A-Park Clean-Up on Saturday, March 27, from 8-11:30 a.m. The first clean-up was a huge success. Over 150 people showed up, including entire families.

The hope is to make the second clean-up just as worthwhile, so as many helpers as possible are needed. The 75-acre park is located at the northeast corner of Central Avenue and Indian School Road, with convenient light rail access. The main entrance is at 3rd Street and Indian School. Just follow the arrows as you drive into the park and they will lead to the parking lot. The group will meet at 8 a.m. at the ramada just east of Memorial Hall.

Everyone and anyone is welcome to attend. Get out in the nice springtime weather before it’s too hot to enjoy all the park has to offer. Steele Indian School Park is one of Central Phoenix’s iconic green spaces, so help keep it that way!

Please RSVP by March 25 at 602.254.7477 or lupe@phoenixcommunityalliance.com.

Also, mark your calendar for May 8, 7 to 10:30 a.m., for the next clean-up.
