Volunteers helping during Friends of the Parks Day on April 28 in Cape Girardeau.

Over 300 area adults and children came out to spruce up Cape Girardeau's parks for the season during the annual Friends of the Parks Day on April 28.

Volunteers collected 67 bags of trash, mulched and planted over 20 flower beds, and mulched 7 playgrounds.

Participants received t-shirts and lunch. Parks and Recreation provided more than 500 hot dogs for the hungry volunteers.

The City of Cape Girardeau thanks all who came out for Friends of the Parks Day for their efforts in keeping our parks beautiful and ready for the season!
