Spokane - With budget cuts and less employees the city parks in the Spokane Area have had to get the brunt of the storm. Less maintenance and less trash removal has prompted some to take action.
Friday, more then 100 brokers from Windermere Real Estate met at Gleneden Park and started working. They spent the day picking up trash and getting the park ready for summer. With school letting out in the area they were hoping to make the park a more pleasant place for children to play.
That is just what they did. Windermere Real Estate picks a project every year in the community for community service day. This year, with six parks throughout Spokane County losing funding, they put their efforts into Gleneden.
Parks and Recreation staff told KHQ News that " cleanup events are the future, at least in the short term, to keeping the area green for everyone."
