Great Experience with Columbus City Parks

I volunteered with the Columbus Parks for the first time on 7/7. It was a fantastic experience. The city employee was very organized, friendly, and knowledgeable. It felt very rewarding to help clean up a city park. Children were literally lined up waiting for us to be finished. You can tell the community really appreciated it.
