People for Parks - Adopt-A-Park 


With over 260 city parks, the Adopt-A-Park allows citizens, and particularly park users, to show pride in their community. It is set up for groups to volunteer in the park of their choice on a regular basis to pick up litter and to perform other tasks to help keep the park clean. Planting flowers, weeding, and clean up / fix-up days are just some of the activities that volunteer groups can do. The program provides an opportunity for individuals, volunteer groups, neighborhood associations, and businesses to take an active role in the maintenance and improvement of local parks, trails and green spaces.  We ask for a minimum commitment of one year of service to your adopted park or trail.
