Clean-up Krewes

The Friends of City Park Clean-Up Krewe works to eliminate litter from one of New Orleans’ most popular family recreational locations and also inspires the next generation in public servants on the importance of keeping our park clean. The responsibility of sustaining our Park’s health belongs to each and every one of us. The Friends of City Park Clean-Up Krewe, its mission, and its ongoing clean-up events are heavily reliant upon volunteers like you!


The Friends of City Park Clean-Up Krewe is dedicated to hosting on-going volunteer days in the Park, focused on reducing litter and beautification. Each Saturday, now through October, volunteers will have the chance to meet and participate alongside other community leaders collecting debris from some of the Park’s most trafficked areas. All supplies will be available upon check-in.
