Group Volunteer Day in the Park

The Esplanade Association encourages Boston area organizations and businesses to gather their employees and join us for a volunteer day in the park. A group volunteer day is a great way to build a sense of camaraderie and teamwork while also promoting Park stewardship and giving back to the local community. We welcome organizations of all types and sizes to join us on the Esplanade for a fun and rewarding day of service.

Activities May Include:

  • Painting benches or fencing
  • Planting new gardens and bulbs
  • Removing invasive plants or weeds
  • Sweeping park pathways
  • Mulching
  • Raking leaves

Scheduling and Time Commitment

  • A minimum of 15 confirmed participants is required to set up a group day. Please email us to inquire about hosting groups larger than 100 people.
  • Volunteer days are three hours long (longer by request)
  • Volunteer days are typically scheduled for Tuesday or Thursday (others by request)
  • During winter and late fall we will continue to schedule volunteers at the park as long as the weather is favorable.
  • Each group is required to designate one or more volunteer leaders from their group who will be present during the event to assist with coordination.

Volunteer Sponsorship Donation

Coordinating Volunteer Days and maintaining the Park has both operational and material costs for the Esplanade Association. Because of this, we ask our corporate and for-profit volunteer groups to support our management of this program with a tax-deductible donation to the Esplanade Association. This mandatory fee is based on the size of your group. Your organization will be recognized for your support on EA’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
