Due to the excessive dry conditions, by order of the Fire Marshall, we are instituting a fire ban for all parks effective immediately. This means NO ground fires in fire rings, fire pits, and NO charcoal grilling of any kind. Gas grills are permitted. Thank you for keeping our parks safe and enjoyable for all!
The REC of Grapevine is a crown jewel of the Grapevine Parks and Recreation Department. This multi-generational recreation facility offers tons of youth programs, a variety of fitness classes and more.
Introducing “Litter Ends with Us”: Grapevine Parks & Recreation’s New Environmental Initiative Promoting Cleaner Communities.
Grapevine Parks & Recreation is excited to announce the launch of its latest program, “Litter Ends with Us!” This innovative social media and department-wide campaign, which began on May 30, is designed to raise awareness among city residents and visitors, inspiring them to take responsibility for maintaining a clean and litter-free environment.
Recognizing the challenges posed by the significant amount of trash during busy holiday weekends, Grapevine Parks & Recreation has taken the lead by implementing a department-wide clean-up initiative in our parks following such events, starting with Memorial Day. We are urging citizens to actively participate in picking up litter whenever they come across it, fostering a positive impact on the cleanliness of our city. The primary goal of this campaign is to spread the message throughout the community and foster a sense of shared responsibility for preserving a pristine environment.
“Our primary objective is to convey the message to our community that if we all take responsibility every day, it will have a significant impact on the cleanliness of the City of Grapevine,” said Chris Smith, Grapevine Parks & Recreation Director.
To encourage active participation, Grapevine Parks & Recreation will be hosting a giveaway of 20 campaign-themed shirts. Participants will be incentivized to pick up litter, capture photos, and tag Grapevine Parks & Recreation in their social media posts. The giveaway will take place throughout the months of June and July.
By utilizing the hashtags #GoGrapevine, #GrapevineTX, and #LitterEndsWithUs, Grapevine Parks & Recreation aims to generate a social media buzz and engage citizens in conversations surrounding environmental responsibility.
In the coming months, Grapevine Parks & Recreation will intensify its social media efforts by posting twice a week, specifically on Tuesdays and Saturdays, accompanied by engaging stories on Mondays and Thursdays. These posts will incorporate research-backed content related to litter, trash, recycling, and other pertinent topics.
To kick off the campaign, Grapevine Parks & Recreation is thrilled to introduce the talented Zack King Band, who have created the theme song for the entire “Litter Ends with Us!” initiative. On Saturday, June 3, a special post will highlight the band’s collaboration and tag them for recognition. Throughout the campaign, Grapevine Parks & Recreation will continue to feature the Zack King Band in various posts, acknowledging their valuable contribution to this community-wide effort.
Grapevine Parks & Recreation invites everyone to join this collective endeavor and take part in preserving the cleanliness and beauty of our community. Together, we can make a lasting difference! Let’s ensure that “Litter Ends with Us!” in Grapevine. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for more fun content!
