Help Preserve Steele Indian School Park

Steele Indian School Park Clean-Up

To see pictures of our last clean-up, click Steele Park Clean-Up

Last December, PCA was the first organization to adopt a City of Phoenix park under the Parks and Recreation Department’s new “My Phoenix-My Park” volunteer program. The program was started in response to the economy and budget cuts that greatly reduced the maintenance of various parks and open spaces.  PCA volunteered to do quarterly clean-ups and improvement projects at Steele Indian School Park focusing on the entry garden, the North perimeter fence line and areas around the lake.

PCA is partnering with HandsOn Greater Phoenix  to kick off this year’s season on Saturday September 11, 2010. Bring your family, friends and neighbors willing to lend a helping hand to keep one of Phoenix’s most beautiful parks well-maintained.

September 11, 2010

National Day of Service

 7:00am to 10:00am
 
To help the City of Phoenix bring additional shade and increase park walkability, PCA and HandsOn Greater Phoenix are helping  plant additional trees along the entry and throughout the park. To raise awareness, the event will commence with a 30-minute training on how to plant a tree properly.  
  
Steele Indian School Park is a 75-acre park located at the northeast corner of Central Avenue & Indian School Road.  The main entrance is off of Third Street.  Just follow the arrows as you drive into the park and they will lead to the parking lot.  We plan to meet at 7:00 a.m. at the Ramada just east of Memorial Hall.
Please wear closed-toe shoes and clothing you don’t mind getting dirty. Also, remember to bring water, sunscreen, and thick gloves (if you have some). Hands-On-Greater Phoenix will be supplying tools and equipment.
 

Please let us know you if you are coming by calling 602-254-7477 ext. 25 or email tonya@phoenixcommunityalliance.com by September 9th. 

If you can’t make September 11th, no worries as we have scheduled more park tree planting and clean-up days! The meeting location will stay the same for all the upcoming events. We hope you plan on participating this season.
