Upcoming: Handley Rock Clean-Up Party, April 21, 2018

Join the Bay Area Climbers Coalition for the Handley Rock Association’s annual Spring clean up party! If you haven’t visited before, Handley Rock Park is a gem of a park located mid-peninsula, with a long history of climbing and absolutely stunning views of the Bay.

Volunteers will be working on the following projects:
-Fire hazard reduction (brush clearing, pruning, etc.
-Glass and trash clean-up
-Graffiti removal

Date: Saturday, April 21, 2018
Time: 8:45 A.M. – 11:00 A.M.
Location: Handley Rock Park is located mid-peninsula, in the Emerald Hills neighbourhood of Redwood City. Unfortunately transit options are very limited (the nearest bus stop is 1.3 miles from the park), as is parking space at the park itself, so we strongly encourage you to carpool for the event. If we have excess vehicles on the day we may have to ask some volunteers to park their cars some distance from the park and walk in.

How To Join: Sign up on Eventbrite!


Safety – We are HUGE on safety! There will be a safety talk at 9am on the day of the event. Please note that we require all participants to be present for the safety talk and wear closed toe shoes. Unfortunately, we cannot allow anyone to participate that does not wear closed toe shoes and/or attend the safety talk.
Food – Lunch will be provided for all volunteers, and the Handley Rock Association will be providing light refreshments earlier in the morning. Please let us know if you have dietary restrictions, and we will try to accommodate them.
Water – Please bring a full water bottle. While there will be access to water from local residents’ houses, we’d like to minimise our reliance on their generosity.
Tools – Tools and gloves will be provided, but we encourage you to bring your own work gloves.
Bathrooms – There are no bathrooms at or near the park. Please go before you go!
Clothing – Sturdy, closed toe shoes are mandatory. A hat and sunscreen are also recommended.
