It's Your Park Day


The Chicago Parks Foundation kicks off our volunteer season with our 8th annual It’s Your Park Day on Saturday June 3!

It's Your Park Day is a special one-day community clean-up event at participating Chicago parks on Saturday, June 3. YOUR Park, YOUR Day, Celebrate in any way! Free, fun, family-friendly.

After It's Your Park Day, the Chicago Parks Foundation's volunteer effort continues citywide with Pitch In for the Parks and Green Teams, both running June through October. 


New This Season...
It's Your Park Day hosting extended to the community!
From March 4th - April 24th, PACs have priority registration to host IYPD at your park.
As a host you will promote the CPF created volunteer registration, receive CPF delivered supplies, coordiate with the CPF team to ensure your event is a success and independently lead your event on June 3!
CPF provides hosting PACs with complimentary event supplies for trash pick-ups and more:
  • Trash bags, gloves, water
  • Mulch, fibar and tools for additional projects



Starting April 24th, public community members (i.e. non-PAC groups) can register to host IYPD at the parks of their choice.

If a PAC has already claimed that park before April 24th, CPF will connect the interested group with that PAC to collaborate for the event.

If the park is unclaimed, CPF will connect the two groups to see if the PAC is interested in participating.

CPF provides non-PAC groups with complimentary event supplies to host trash pick-ups only (no additional activities).
