This April 14 is a big day in Rumson. In addition to it being the opening day of the Rumson Rec and Travel baseball season, the Rumson Environmental Commission is joining together with the Rumson Rec Commission and the Rumson DPW to host the second annual Clean-Up Your Parks Day. Last year’s event drew enthusiastic participation and this year’s event will be just as fun.

Clean-Up Your Parks Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at each of the five Rumson Parks that are home to recreation and travel sports. Teams of baseball players, lacrosse players, soccer players, Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts, National Junior Honor Society kids and interested residents will help us gather trash and debris from the area parks. The participating students will receive educational information on recycling at each of the locations. And to make the clean-up a breeze the organizers will provide bags, gloves and water and terrific prizes for the “most unique garbage finds” which provided many laughs last year.
