Citywide Spring Cleanup

To our dedicated partners and volunteers:

In alignment with public health official guidelines, Saint Paul Parks and Recreation has made the decision to cancel this year's annual Citywide Spring Cleanup scheduled for Saturday, April 25. Please stay tuned as we hope to provide additional guidance and recommendations on how the public can help us care for our parks this spring. At this time, our parks and trails remain open to the public. Please visit for park visitor recommendations in alignment with CDC guidelines.

Join forces with family, friends and neighbors for the 34th annual Citywide Spring Cleanup!

When: Saturday, April 25, 2020 | 9am-11:30am CANCELED

Why: Each year, hundreds of volunteers gather across Saint Paul for the Citywide Spring Cleanup to pick up litter that has recently become exposed due to the melting snow.

Who: Individuals and groups of all ages come together to help beautify the city of Saint Paul.

Where and How: Participating is easy! Drop by your selected cleanup site any time between 9am-11:30am, to pick up bags, gloves, snacks and meet your neighbors and community members. Then head out and clean up your park or neighborhood of choice.
