The Adopt-A-Park program is aimed at providing community and cooperate groups the tools, know-how, and support they need to lead their own volunteer projects in a park that is important to them. Adopt-A-Park partners must perform a minimum of four parks projects per year and any group, organization or business is welcome to participate.
