This is a great way to get some funding for Snow Park or other Oakland Parks:
Oakland Parks Coalition Sets Date for Love Your Parks Day
Volunteers Needed to Survey Parks Throughout the City
As residents of Oakland , we enjoy more than 2,300 acres of parkland. Unfortunately some of our parks do not get the attention they need to keep them beautiful and inviting. On Saturday morning, October 28th from 9 am until noon, OPC is planning a city-wide survey to determine the condition of our parks.
Data from this survey will be analyzed and compiled into a report which will be presented to Mayor-elect Dellums and the City Council. We are confident that this survey will bring to the attention of city officials specific maintenance concerns that need to be addressed.
To conduct our survey we need lots and lots of volunteers. We'll all meet at the Garden Center in Lakeside Park, 666 Bellevue at 9 am . After refreshments and instructions about how to conduct the survey, we will fan out in small groups to assess several parks in a Council District.
We hope that you can spare a few hours of your time for this important undertaking and that you will refer others to us. To sign up for:
Love Your Parks Day please reply to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide us with your full name, phone number and Council District and we will get back to you with parking instructions and more information about this event.
