VU June 2022 Event – Sisson Street Park

Join us for a great day of volunteering in Remington!

For June’s event we’re heading to Remington and partnering with the team at Sisson Street Park to give the area a ready-for-summer glow up!

The Sisson Street Community Park is a half-acre community-managed greenspace in the heart of Remington. The Friends of Sisson Street Park – a group of Remington neighbors – holds an Adopt-a-Lot license with the City of Baltimore’s Department of Housing and Community Development to maintain the space for community use. Since 2015, neighbors have worked together to transform an overgrown lot into a valued community space where residents gather to meet, walk their dogs, play with their kids, tend to their community garden plots, participate in fitness classes, attend a community event, and enjoy a meal outdoors.

For June’s #SecondSaturday we’re lending a hand with a park cleanup and various projects involving digging, building, weeding, and staining. We will also be helping out with a community cleanup in the Remington area.

Street parking is available along the park and on surrounding streets. There is also a garage near R. House that is a short walk away.

This event will be outside, and in June in Maryland. Please be sure to wear clothes that are comfortable, cooling, and are able to get dirty. Closed-toe shoes are your friend for this one, and don’t forget your sunscreen!

For the afterparty we’ll be heading just a few blocks away to R. House. If you’ve never been, get ready for some GREAT food and drinks. We hope you’ll join us there to celebrate another great event!

Be sure to register NOW so you don’t miss out!
