About the Adopt-a-Park program

Adopt-a-Park is a fun, educational and worthwhile program that will provide your organization  or family with the opportunity to make our parks even more safe and beautiful than they already are! You can clean up and beautify a park or a stretch of trail with the assistance of the Recreation and Parks staff. This is a great way to promote civic responsibility and generate community pride.

Responsibilities of volunteers

  • Pick up litter in and around your adopted site at least twice per month (you provide the trash bags) and placing in trash containers at the park.
  • Reporting any vandalism, graffiti, or equipment in need of repair to the Parks Department.
  • You are welcome to plant flowers; however, if you do, you must continue to maintain them until the end of the season by weeding and watering

Who can volunteer?

People of all ages and walks of life can be an active part of Adopt-a-Park program.  Youth must have an adult supervisor. Groups could consist of:

  • Individuals/families
  • Community organizations
  • Church groups
  • Neighborhoods
  • Service Clubs
  • Youth groups
  • Businesses
  • Schools

Choosing a park

Volunteers may adopt the park of their choice (providing it has not already been adopted).
