Beautification & Cleanups

Adopt A Park SignAdopt-A-Park and Adopt-A-Spot-in-a-Park are programs to promote community involvement in maintaining and beautifying our city parks and to instill a sense of pride for parks and public spaces through volunteerism. A secondary benefit is the creation of a safe, clean, and well-maintained environment for all to enjoy! The programs encourage the participation of civic leagues and alliances, businesses, schools, churches, local service groups, sports associations, youth organizations and scout troops, etc., to perform various tasks on a regularly-scheduled basis for an agreed upon period of one year. The "special projects" are designed for performing specific work on a project-only basis (examples would be trash/litter pickup and beautification projects such as planting, mulching and weeding).
