Volunteers Spend Day Off Cleaning Up Rabbit Branch Park

Volunteers Spend Day Off Cleaning Up Rabbit Branch Park

On Monday, January 20, 2020, Braddock Supervisor James Walkinshaw, along with the Royal Lake Park Volunteer Team (aka Friends of Royal Lake) engaging more than 60 volunteers, honored Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy with a day of service at Rabbit Branch Park in Fairfax, Virginia. The group braved frigid temps all morning to clean up the park, stream and surrounding wooded areas, removing 18 large bags of trash. They also gave the park sign a refresh by carefully hand-painting the faded lettering and touching up worn spots. The Park Authority provided the paint and supplies and provided project oversight.
