Friends of the Park Day in Cape Girardeau canceled due to weather

"Friends of the Park" to be held on Saturday in Cape

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - The Friends of the Parks Day & The Great Cape Clean was canceled due to weather.

According to the city, it was canceled due rain expected on Saturday, April 24.

If you or your group would still like to help beautify parks, you can contact the city to see how you can help with a park project.

The city was looking for volunteers to plant flower beds, paint playground equipment, pick up trash and much more.

Cape Girardeau Parks Divisional Manager Brock Davis said earlier in the week they needed volunteers, not just for beautifying the parks, but to also clean up areas across the city.

“We literally have areas where we will pick up areas of trash one day and then go back the next and there’s trash there again,” Davis said. “So, it’s constant maintenance for us. It’s very time consuming. So it allows us to get a Spring cleanup to help keep things maintained throughout the summer.”
