Volunteers are needed Saturday by the city of Olympia to help weed flower beds and clean up Lions Park from 9 a.m.-noon.

After the work is done, children are encouraged to stay and play on the recently installed playground equipment. Volunteers should plan to meet at 800 Wilson St. S.E., Olympia. Tools, gloves and refreshments will be provided.

The event is part of the Olympia Parks, Arts and Recreation Department’s Volunteer In Parks series of work parties. Each Saturday morning, volunteers improve a local park. Volunteers also will help maintain the trail and plant new trees and shrubs at Mission Creek Nature Park from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Oct. 23.

Volunteers can register or just show up. Contact Sylvana Niehuser at 360-753-8365 or [email protected] for more information.
