Tennis Ball Cleanup in the Bird Sanctuary

November 11 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

You know when you’re mid-volley, feeling sharp, and then your tennis ball goes soaring over the court’s fence into the beyond never to be seen again?

Don’t worry – no one’s calling fault! We’re inviting you to show off some fancy footwork and give some love to Riverside Park’s Bird Sanctuary, located along the east border of the 119th St Tennis Courts, to remove the hundreds of tennis balls that have accumulated over the years.

This border has been newly cleared of brush, leaving easy access for an ace team of volunteers to come to the net and clean up our park!

Game, set, match. You in?


DATE: Saturday, November 11

TIME: 9:30 AM – 12:00 PM

MEETING LOCATION: 119th St Tennis Court Parkhouse in Riverside Park

Riverside Park Conservancy will provide gloves, trash bags, and any other tools and materials needed for the project. Please always keep personal items with you, as we may not have a secure area for personal belongings.

For the safety of our staff and volunteers, if on the day of the project you are sick or not feeling well, STAY HOME! It is not worth the risk to you or to others.
