It is a common complaint in Sacramento that the city doesn't do enough to maintain its parks. The discussion usually centers around city funding and budgets, when we might be better off asking why there are not more neighborhood cleanups, like the one occurring in Tahoe Park this Saturday.
"During the current difficult economic climate, it is important that the residents of Sacramento take steps to ensure that our great shared resource, our city's beautiful parks, don't languish as a result of year-after-year of budget cuts," said organizer and Tahoe Park Neighborhood Association board member Isaac Gonzalez on Tuesday.
The cleanup runs from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. All residents need to do to participate is show up: The TPNA and the Department of Parks and Recreation will provides tools, gloves and assignments to keep the volunteer crews busy, Gonzalez said.
There will be a raffle with raffle prizes, including coffeehouse gift cards and a lunch with City Councilman Kevin McCarty.
