Help keep Blythe beautiful
No parking on park lawns; pick up and throw away trash
Special to the Times

BLYTHE, Calif. - The City of Blythe takes pride in the parks and now it asks for the community's help to keep them beautiful.

It's against the law to park on the lawn of a city park. If caught, a citation costing $50 for the first offense may be issued. The Blythe City Council is now enforcing this rule because driving on the park damages the grass, sprinklers and sidewalks that are driven over to get into the park. Please help the city by parking and driving in designated parking areas only.

No one likes to see trash in a park. The city works hard to keep parks litter free but with just two park employees and seven parks to maintain this can be a huge task. Help keep the parks clean by placing all trash in disposal bins or carrying it out when leaving.

If interested in volunteering, the City of Blythe has an Adopt-A-Park program for persons or groups interested in helping the city maintain the parks, call Public Works at 760-922-6611 for more information.

The goal is to provide clean and safe parks that everyone can enjoy and the public is appreciated for making this possible.
