Become a Park Ambassador!

Do you love a park near you? Want to work with us to make it an even better place? Consider becoming a Volunteer Park Ambassador. Volunteer Park Ambassadors spend about 1.5 hours per week in their park working with park users, engaging the public, and improving their park.

Volunteer with a Group

Service projects are a great way for your employees, club, or group to enjoy our parks while giving back to the community.


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.
