Clean-up efforts were a part of 13th annual Parks Appreciation Day

Hundreds of volunteers spent Saturday morning sprucing up Federal Way’s Celebration Park as a part of the 13th annual Parks Appreciation Day.

Tasks including painting, spreading beauty bark, planting flowers, trimming and other jobs to help clean up the park.

Last year, teams of volunteers worked at Alderbrook, Saghalie, Steel Lake and Celebration parks. This year all efforts focused on Celebration Park in preparation of the Special Olympics and other big sports tournaments scheduled for the summer.
