Help Precinct 4's Parks Recover

Many residents lost more than a home during Hurricane Harvey. They lost amenities, favorite businesses, neighbors, and a sense of security. While Precinct 4 can't bring most of those back, we're working hard to restore your local parks. We can't do it alone, however.

Now that many homes and businesses are on the path to recovery, we're calling on community members to join us in the parks. Stay updated on volunteer opportunities throughout the precinct by following Precinct 4 on Facebook.

Anyone who would like to volunteer at Jones Park, including nonprofit organizations or corporate groups, interested in helping with trail clearing can email

As conditions improve at Mercer Botanic Gardens, staff will call on volunteers to help restore the park. Anyone who is interested can contact Volunteer Coordinator Jamie Hartwell at for volunteer opportunities. Until then, Mercer is encouraging donations to its Rebuild Mercer campaign.
