Langford Park cleanup as part of Acts of Love and Kindness season

The city of Orlando and Downtown Arts District will host a cleanup at Langford Park as part of Acts of Love and Kindness season to celebrate a new, public art table project.

The “Bring Kindness to the Table” public art project will be unveiled on Saturday, April 23, at Langford Park, which is located at 1808 E Central Boulevard.

The event will begin at 9 a.m. with a brief program, including remarks from local officials and the unveiling of the new table, which is a partnership between the city and One Orlando Alliance, which is a coalition of LGBTQ+ serving organizations.

During the 49-day “season,” participants will be encouraged to engage in volunteerism, share stories, and perform acts of love and kindness in the community. The 49 days are a in memory of the 49 individuals who were killed during the Pulse shooting in June 2016.

Following the program, volunteers will receive materials from Keep Orlando Beautiful to pick up trash, clean graffiti, and sanitize playground equipment in Langford Park and surrounding areas.

All participants are encouraged to share their photos on social media tagging One Orlando Alliance and
