The Christopher Columbus Park playground.

The Friends of Christopher Columbus Park will celebrate spring with a playground cleanup and pizza party and is asking for donations of new sandbox toys, the group announced.

Neighborhood families are invited to participate in the annual cleanup of the play area and the placement of fresh sand in the sandbox, along with a celebration that includes food and entertainment for the children. It will take place Saturday, May 4, from noon to 2 p.m., and will include free pizza, children’s games, face-painting, and a performance by Big Joe the Storyteller.

Each year, the friends group supplies fresh sand for the sandbox, it said, but many of the toys in the box are showing their wear. It is asking for donations of plastic trucks, shovels, buckets, brooms, and other sandbox-appropriate toys.

New toys can be dropped off until May 4 with the front-desk concierge at 300 Commercial St., directed to the attention of Ruth Gonzalez Vega.
