Get Involved

Friends of Forest Hills Playground organizes park cleanups, summer concerts and the famous Forest Hills Halloween Spooktacular. And we need your help! Forest Hills Playground's last event of 2018 was the December 1 playground cleanup. More than 25 adult volunteers and more than a few kids grabbed rakes and brooms, swept up sand and leaves, picked up trash and broken toys, and gave the playground a good scrubbing. Our first event of 2019 will be the spring cleanup, likely in April as part of the Rock Creek Conservancy's Rock Creek Extreme Cleanup. Forest Hills Park is part of the Rock Creek watershed, so everything you do to help keep our park trash free also protects local streams, rivers and wildlife.
