Keep Southlake Beautiful with The Great American Cleanup 2023!

It’s time for the Great American Cleanup once again!

Spring is here, and there’s no better time for a community-wide cleanup to keep our city looking fresh! Gather your friends and family and join Keep Southlake Beautiful as we do our part in The Great American Cleanup. Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup is part of a nationwide effort in more than 20,000 communities year-round.

Join us on Saturday, May 13, at the Parkwood Training Center at 9:00 AM for a morning of city beautification and community-building. Keep Southlake Beautiful staff will be on-site at the Parkwood Training Center (the old Senior Center) at 307 Parkwood Dr. early in the morning to provide your volunteer team with a light breakfast. Drink some coffee, eat a bagel, and collect your cleanup supplies and KSB swag!

This year’s cleanup sites include available streets from our Adopt-A-Street program! Once you eat breakfast and pick up your supplies, you will be assigned a road to clean up. Head over to that street to play your part in beautifying Southlake. Once done, meet us back at Parkwood to drop off your trash bags and return your supplies! It’ll be a great morning to give back and earn volunteer hours!

We can’t wait to see you at The Great American Cleanup! Learn more about this event and register today!
