Habitat Volunteers Gave the Parkway Pond Spring Cleaning
On Saturday, April 22, 2017, teams of volunteers gathered at the Parkway Pond. This pond, also known as Pond 156, is part of the Neabsco Creek Watershed. Habitat for Humanity Prince William County partners with the Prince William County Department of Public Works on cleanup sites like this one. The Parkway Pond is Habitat’s official Adopt-A-Stream site. Litter from the shopping centers nearby flows into the pond, so this is a regular cleanup site for Habitat volunteers.
We would like to thank the people who made the Parkway Pond Spring Cleanup a success. Thank you Michelle Baxendell, Michael Gallagher and David Gross for leading our volunteer teams on Saturday. Thank you Tim Hughes from PWC Public Works for bringing the site to Habitat’s attention. Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank all of the volunteers who participated at this site.

Cleanup projects are part of Habitat for Humanity’s Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) program. We like to engage residents and community partners to revive neighborhoods and make them safe, inviting places to live. Community development projects improve the health and well-being of the general public. They revitalize public areas, remove blight, improve water quality and generally give residents improved access to public areas and a better sense of well-being and safety.
