On our first official Parish Proud Day in 2022, more than 500 volunteers came together at Girard Park for one massive transformation, completed in just two hours!

Now, over a year later, the park is in need of some fresh love and care.

Join Parish Proud as we come together once more to beautify and revitalize one of the most traversed parks in our community. Projects will include the repainting of several pavilions (to match the new color scheme), large scale landscaping projects, fence staining, and more!
