EAST HIGH STUDENTS HELP SPRUCE UP CITY PARK
As CPFANÂ continues discussions with the Denver Department of Parks and RecreationÂ about volunteer opportunities in City Park, new CPFAN Board member, Kelly Crosby organized a clean-up with twenty East High students providing the labor. East High Principal, John Youngquist,Â gave the students a hearty send-offÂ as the students, armed with DPR buckets and grabbers, crossed the esplanade and entered the park, spendingÂ the next few hours scouring the park for any trash.
DPR Superintendent for the East District, Adam Smith, whose office is in the City Park pavilion, has reported that DPR staff has been slashed to 50% capacity. CPFAN is hopeful that there will be more ways its members and all City Park-lovers can provide supportive services to DPR during the pandemic and beyond.
