McGolrick Park Saturday Sweep

Saturday Sweeps from McGolrick Park on Vimeo.

Starting this Saturday, June 11th, 10 AM

McGolrick Park is the jewel of Greenpoint, but in the summer months, it needs extra helping hands to keep it litter-free. On four summer Saturdays, come join your neighbors as we tackle the litter problem for a more beautiful and enjoyable McGolrick! Start this Saturday!
Everyone is welcome, please sign up here to help us know how many rakes and brooms to bring!

Mark your calendar for future Saturday Sweep dates:
July 9, August 13, September 10

Volunteer and get some McGorlick Park Swag
one Saturday: Get a commemorative button. Flair!
two Saturdays: Get sunnies so you can fight that litter in style.
three Saturdays: Score a tee with our iconic statue. So many bragging rights, so little time.
all four Saturdays: a limited-edition McGolrick tote will be yours!
