Resolving to be a Park Angel

Instead of the usual New Year’s resolutions to exercise more, drink less caffeine and organize your closets, why not put volunteering on your list of resolutions?

Whether it’s Hampton Park, Waterfront Park, Marion Square or Hazel Parker Playground, there’s a good chance you have a favorite Charleston park, so this is the year you can give back to Charleston’s parks.

The Park Angels are doers, promoters, supporters; the faces of the Charleston Parks Conservancy who take a special interest and ownership in their parks and all of Charleston’s city parks. They plant flowers in the spring, water in the summertime, pull weeds in the fall, volunteer at events, assist with children’s programming and promote the mission and work of the Conservancy. Whatever your interest in Charleston’s parks, we have a role for you.

Still not sure? Try us out! We’ll be working in Windermere Community Garden from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. It’s a great day to work with us because we’ll be planting dozens of daffodil bulbs. You don’t need to have a gardening background. Our expert staff will show you just what to do.
