**LOCATION** BELLE ISLE PARK ATHLETIC COMPLEX

Spring Island Clean-up is a legacy event that has been occurring since the 1970’s. Its early days hosted a handful of dedicated community members who were passionate about the park. In 2017, we welcomed over 900 volunteers to help prepare the island for season.

Come see the inside of the Athletic Complex at this year's Spring Clean-up. We are excited to have access to a facility on the island that is not typically open to the public. Please note that this is a change in location from previous years. Don't fret- detailed directions will be provided via our website and facebook event page:
