For years, MCPC has initiated park cleanup days at Murphey Candler Park. Volunteers gather and focus on clearing fallen tree limbs, debris and invasive plants like ivy. The highlight is always getting the canoes out of storage and picking the lake shoreline for yucky, storm leftovers. These cleanup days are a vital component of park maintenance and awareness.
Recently, Steve Peters, a twenty year resident of MCP, spearheaded the Adopt the Park initiative. Steve is targeting sports leagues, local businesses, Girl and Boy Scouts, charitable organizations, local schools and more. His goal is to encourage each organization to adopt a section of the park.
One major way of maintaining a consistent impact will be the Adopt the Park initiative, where an organization takes custody of a geographic area of the park through cleanup days and regular upkeep.
With your help, we can source volunteers from local organizations to improve and preserve Murphey Candler Park.
