In partnership with United Way of Northern California, Redding East Rotary and Redding Parks Foundation, the City of Redding hosted it's third annual Parke Diem park cleanup event on October 14, 2017.
After receiving 51 nominations for various projects throughout the city, East Oak Park at 1399 Arizona Street in Redding was selected for a $10,000 makeover and volunteers of all ages came out to the park to clean branches/ brush, put up new signs, filled the playground with new wood chips, revitalized & painted old equipment, benches and tables and more.
Carpe Diem, a Latin phrase coined in 23 B.C., literally translates to “seize the day.” “Parke Diem” pays homage to this historic aphorism by challenging Redding residents to support the city’s many beloved parks. Supporters of the event hope that Parke Diem will become a valued city-wide tradition, fueling individuals and park advocates around the city to instigate other park revitalization initiatives.
Thank you to all who joined us for Parke Diem 2017. Amazing things happen when we LIVE UNITED.
