Locations include:  

  • Waterleaf Park - Zone 1 - 628 Abundance Lane

  • Waterleaf Park - Zone 3 - 628 Abundance Lane  
  • Cool Springs Park and Trail - 115 Florida Springs Drive

Kyle volunteer groups of 10 or less can choose which area to clean upon signup, then meetup at their designated area. Organizers will provide gloves and bags to volunteers, and offer a pizza voucher as a thank you once completed.

All participants are asked to practice State and Local Orders regarding social distancing and using face coverings.
