Green-Up Day

GUD No Date

Green-Up Day: April 25, 2015

Registration is currently closed for this year's event.

Green-Up Day 2015 is April 25th! In year's past, Green-Up Day has focused solely on Burnet Woods. While Burnet Woods is a beautiful place that needs community support to reach its full potential; for the first time in 2014 the Center for Community Engagement and the Cincinnati Parks shared the Green-Up Day love with other parks surrounding the University of Cincinnati's Uptown Campus.

The goal of Green-Up Day is to beautify and maintain our precious public green-spaces so the entire community can fully enjoy them in their seasons of highest use. Public parks are a simple but profoundly important component of a community's quality of life, they are a place where people from all backgrounds come together to connect with nature, recreate, and build stronger communities.

The Parks

Each of the other parks are also within walking distance of campus, so check them out!

What to expect:

  • Please bring a pair of work gloves to the event if you can. All other tools will be provided.
