What is I Love My Park Day?

I Love My Park Day, held the first Saturday in May, attracts thousands of volunteers from across the state to participate in cleanup, improvement, and beautification events at New York State parks and historic sites. Join us to celebrate New York's park system by cleaning up park lands and beaches, planting trees and gardens, restoring trail and wildlife habitat, removing invasive species, and working on various site improvement projects

I Love My Park Day 2021

Whether you hosted one of the 140+ events across New York State or were a volunteer who rolled up your sleeve to give back to our parks, historic sites and public lands – Thank You!

I Love My Park Day – which continues to be the largest single-day volunteer event in NYS – celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2021 and would not have been such a success without your help. Despite some unique challenges created by ongoing social distancing guidelines, Parks & Trail New York, along with our partners at New York State Parks and DEC, provided over 5,000 opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to enhance, beautify and steward our precious natural places.

This year’s event included improvement projects ranging from general park cleanup and invasive species removal, to beautification efforts such as flower and tree planting, painting, installation of benches and picnic tables, trail maintenance, and much more.

Thank you again for your hard work to making I Love My Park Day a success. We are excited to work together to make I Love My Park Day 2022 the biggest and best yet!
