Community Cleanup Day

16th Annual Community Clean-up Day - May 19, 2018


This one-day, annual volunteer event rallies hundreds of volunteers to help prepare the city for the summer! Volunteer projects include park beautification, tree plantings, creek cleanups, trail restorations, graffiti removal and more. Parks and Recreation will be hosting projects in four locations; Boulder Creek, Columbia Cemetery, East Community Park, and Scott Carpenter Park. 

Boulder Creek


Our Adopt a Creek team from Rocky Mountain Anglers is hosting a creek clean up to help get the creek and bike path ready for heavy use this summer. All volunteers will be invited for a free BBQ after their clean-up efforts!

Columbia Cemetery


Help keep the Irises along Columbia Cemetery beautiful and happy! Volunteers will be joining forces to weed the Irises along the fence of this historic cemetery located at 9th and College. 

East Boulder Community Park


Help with the annual spring cleaning of East Boulder Community Park. Volunteers will get a workout as they rake leaves, picking up trash, and mulch the shrub beds throughout the park!

Scott Carpenter Park 


Help park staff get the one of Boulder's busiest parks ready for the summer foot traffic! We will weed and mulch shrub beds, rake leaves, pick up trash, weed parking lot medians, purne vegetation inside of the pool area, paint the playground structure, and paint graffiti. 


Please register by Tuesday, May 15.
