Find a Volunteer Opportunity that Works for YOU!
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.
Louisville Parks and Recreation is happy to work with Scouts, students, and neighborhood groups to accommodate a service project when possible. To learn more about completing a Service Project with Louisville Park and Recreation.
