District 10 Como Community Council

Clean up Como park together April 23


D10 Como Park is co-hosting the Como Park portion of the city’s Regional Parks Clean-up Day, Saturday, April 23, 2022 from 9-11:30 a.m. Individuals and groups of all ages come together to pick up litter that has recently become exposed due to the melting snow. Look for our table near the Como Pavilion around 9 a.m. to check in and pick up bags and gloves. Borrowed equipment should be returned by 11:30 a.m. Registration is not required, but it helps us plan and communicate with volunteers in the event of poor weather, etc. Registration and more info at district10comopark.org/como-clean-up

Celebrate Spring! Event
Come and celebrate spring at the North Dale Recreation Center, April 30, 10:30 a.m.-noon. The Como Community Council is partnering with Parks and Recreation for a morning of fun that any outdoor enthusiast (even the smallest) can enjoy. There’s something for everyone – a garden/outdoor themed resource fair, kids crafts and seed planting, light refreshments, games and a gently used clothing drive to help kick off your spring cleaning goals.
