Clean up YOUR Park

Want to be involved in the Parisite DIY skate park, and other things larger like creating a framework for skate parks across the city? Come out Saturday, Dec 2nd @ Noon(3350 Paris Ave). Bring work gloves, brooms, trash bags, shovels, rakes, etc and help us cleanse the space, and we can take it from there! We’re actively seeking out people to get involved in their own personal ways. What are you good at, and how can you use those skills to assist in improving skateboarding infrastructure throughout New Orleans?
