Join Us for Earth Day & Arbor Day at Ballinger Park April 27

Earth Day 2018 - Mom, Dad, Son and Daughter at Ballinger Park

The first 50 volunteers will receive a 1 gallon Hemlock or Chestnut tree.

Individuals, families and groups are encouraged to attend to help with the maintenance of Ballinger Park. If you have a group that would like to participate, please contact Parks and Property Management Superintendent Ken Courtmanch at (425) 776-1811 to register in advance so we can be prepared with enough food and supplies. All interested volunteers should meet at 9:00 a.m. on April 27 at Ballinger Clubhouse, 23000 Lakeview Drive, for a brief meeting and warm up with coffee.

Common activities include pruning, trash removal, and raking. Ballinger Park can be very wet, so volunteers should wear boots if possible and bring work gloves. Volunteers may also bring along rakes and non-electric pruning tools, to help the effort and so we have enough tools to go around.

Following the work party, the City Council will host a lunch for the volunteers in appreciation of their volunteer service. Please come and help make Mountlake Terrace shine. For more information, visit
