Keeping our Parks Beautiful
Who else is excited for summer?! I'm looking forward to barbecues with the family and spending more time outdoors. With that in mind, I thought this would be a great time to talk about Provo's amazing parks and trails and share a few reminders to help keep our parks beautiful.
Park pavilions are used heavily each day during the summer months. And we want to keep our parks maintained and in the best possible condition. So it’s important for patrons to follow the pavilion rules and make sure that anything they pack in is packed out.
The benefits to carrying out your trash and recyclables include:
Trash can be foraged by animals which can be harmful to them
Increasing community pride of our parks
Trash receptacles can detract from the beauty of each park’s natural environment
Increasing the safety of our patrons by reducing the number of bees, wasps and other pests
Allows our limited staff resource to complete other necessary duties to keep the parks maintained
Please leave the pavilion in as good, if not better condition than when you arrived. Remove table covers, tape and any cooking oil or grease from tables, grills, and floors. Pick up all bottles, cans, paper, cigarette butts, etc., and take bagged trash with you when you are finished.
Thank you for helping keep our parks beautiful!
