PASCO, Wash. — Are you looking for a different way to make an impact on your community? Well, the Pasco Police Department might have the answer for you: A clean-up effort at Sylvester Park this Saturday.

In a social media post published by the Pasco Police on Thursday morning, local law enforcement announced that it will be stationed at Sylvester Park from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 26.

The NRPA is partnering with The Walt Disney Company to promote healthier lifestyles for the next generation. A crucial aspect of this initiative is a new training program left by the NRPA that will train Pasco Parks & Recreation leadership on how to instill equitable policies and improve access to sports programs for Tri-Cities youth.
