“The City has seen a surge in park visitors since the pandemic began, including on the Broadway malls, ” said BMA executive director Robyn Bellamy. “Combine heavy use of the Broadway malls with significant cuts in the sanitation budget, and we are seeing an increase in trash on the malls that needs to be addressed. We encourage our neighbors to join us for an upcoming Clean Up event,” Bellamy said.

Community Clean Ups will be on Saturdays, October 24, November 7 and November 14. Locations will be announced soon but you can check on BMA’s website at for up to date information. Rain dates will be held on the following Sundays.
