What is the Adopt-A-Park program?
Adopt-A-Park is a stewardship program that matches corporate and community partners with a local park to love. Adopt-A-Park partners commit to become stewards of this park property. At minimum, partners perform four projects per year at their adopted park. The Adopt-A-Park program is designed specifically for groups from local companies, schools, neighborhood groups, and other community organizations. Learn more about the program in the Adopt-A-Park Handbook.
