The Downtown Issaquah Association and the Kiwanis Club of Issaquah recently invited locals to save the date for the 5th annual citywide “Keep Issaquah Beautiful Day”, on April 22, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Volunteers – both groups and individuals – are needed to spend a couple of hours making a difference in our community. Clubs, businesses and students welcome. Volunteers can pick up litter, push a broom, swing a shovel or plant some flowers. There are jobs for all ages and abilities and flexible schedules to get the work done.
Clean up will include the following areas:
- Downtown – Pedestrian Park, Train Depot, Memorial Field, Fish Hatchery, Community Center, Food Bank, Rainier Trail
- Front Street S. – Sunset to 2nd Ave.
- Gilman Blvd – SR900 to Front St. N.

Tools and supplies will be provided.
Top Pot Donuts and Starbucks coffee will be provided in the morning and Flying Pie Pizza, Talking Rain and KIND Bars will be served at 12 p.m.
The Downtown Issaquah Association is encouraging businesses in historic downtown to do their own cleanup of sidewalks, flower boxes and more. Students can earn their community service hours.
Event organizers hope attendees bring a friend, make new friend, and make a difference.
The mission of the Downtown Issaquah Association is to promote and enhance the vitality of historic Downtown Issaquah through programs and events that celebrate our unique culture.
