City invites volunteers to summer cleanup events

Happy Parks Event

Are you ready to help your community? The City of Marysville is hosting several volunteer events this summer that focus on tidying and maintaining city parks and community-gathering areas. 

“Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and give back to the community,” Volunteer & Community Events Coordinator Sam Giffin said. “Litter pick-up is a great way for anyone to get involved as it’s really accessible to anyone.” 

Volunteers must be 14 years or older, or attend with a parent/guardian.

Litter League

Litter cleanups work. Studies have shown that cleanups are important for supporting tourism and local economies, protecting wildlife and raising public awareness of the threat of litter to both wildlife and communities.

The goal of the Marysville Litter League is to pick up 2,000 bags of waste this year, and we are already more than halfway there. Join our four Litter League events this summer to help reach our goal. 

Volunteer groups will start at the meet-up locations before branching out to different streets. The city will provide trash pickers, gloves and trash bags.

June 249-11 a.m.Comeford Park, 514 Delta Ave.
July 299-11 a.m.Opera House, 1225 3rd St. 
Aug. 199-11 a.m.Harborview Park, 4900 60th Ave. N.E.
Sept. 239-11 a.m.IBEW 191 parking lot, 3100 164th St. N.E.


Happy Parks, Happy Hearts

“Our Parks Maintenance team does a great job at keeping our parks a safe and enjoyable place for people to visit,” Giffin said. “However, some tasks have to be put towards the end of the priority lists.”

For these events, volunteers will help with:

  • Herbage restoration, such as removing invasive plants like blackberry and knotweed
  • Spreading bark chips
  • Painting and staining projects
  • Landscaping, such as weeding, edging and trimming.

 Volunteers should bring their own gardening gloves and bottled water. The city will provide the necessary tools for specific projects.

July 89 a.m.-12 p.m.Jennings Park, 6915 Armar Rd. 
Aug. 129 a.m.-12 p.m.Doleshel Park, 9028 67th Ave. N.E.
Sept. 169 a.m.-12 p.m.Strawberry Fields, 6100 152nd St. N.E.
