I Love My Park Day -- Saturday, May 5 -- North Bethlehem Park

Mar 22, 2018

North Bethlehem Park will be the site of Bethlehem’s 2018 “I Love My Park Day” on Saturday, May 5 from 9 a.m. to noon. Hosted by Friends of Bethlehem Parks and Recreation in conjunction with Parks & Trails New York and the Town of Bethlehem, the event is being sponsored by a generous donation from M&T Bank.

“I Love My Park Day” volunteers are being sought to rake trails, spread wood chips on the playground, weed and plant flowers, and update the picnic area. The first 50 volunteers to register by April 18 will receive a Friends of Bethlehem Parks and Recreation t-shirt.

Parks & Trails New York organized the first “I Love My Park Day” in 2012 to enhance State parks and historic sites, boost volunteerism and raise the visibility of the entire State parks system and its needs. Many locally owned parks and their friends groups now participate in the event as well. This is Bethlehem’s fifth annual “I Love My Park Day.”


To volunteer, contact Please indicate number of volunteers and t-shirt sizes (Adult small, medium, large, extra-large, and 2x available). Volunteers should wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants to protect themselves from scrapes and insect bites, as well as shoes appropriate for muddy conditions. If possible, please bring work gloves, a rake and gardening tools. The rain date is Suday, May 6 — registrants will be notified in the event of a rain delay.
