Volunteers clean up Parklands of Floyds Fork

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Volunteers spent Saturday morning at a big fall clean-up at the Parklands of Floyds Fork.

This is the second clean-up of its kind this year, picking up trash and beautifying the area.

People with canoes and kayaks also floated the river, picking up debris like cans and plastic.

One woman, who uses the dog park nearly every day, says it's important to give back and volunteer her time to keep it in good shape.

"When you have something like this, where you get so much out of it, so much enjoyment, and you meet great people and the dog has so much fun and it's helped her so much, that all they're asking you to come out is for a couple hours and a little manual labor that doesn't hurt anybody," volunteer Rosie Allocco said.

The last "Creek Sweep" happened in April, where more than 80 volunteers picked up nearly 700 pounds of trash.
