On Saturday, October 24th, at 9am Southern Queens Greenway and friends will host a neighborhood cleanup at Tudor Park. Get ready to clean up some trash with awesome people. It’ll be a great event and we’ll have a little party afterwards to celebrate all of our hard work. Parent supervision is required for participants under 18 years old. If you know anyone who would like to get their hands dirty and wants to do some community service before Halloween this is a great opportunity. If you are from an organization or business that would like to partner up or would like to donate please use the Contact Us page to reach us.
