Adopt a Park

Help keep our parks safe and beautiful. Sign up to be a Park Ambassador for a one-year commitment (April to October) and receive a free t-shirt!

  • Park Ambassadors are asked to visit the park at least once per month, complete the park inspection checklist, and submit the report at the end of each month.
  • If you notice an issue that presents a hazard or safety issue – don’t wait! Please contact the Parks and Recreation office immediately (hanging branches, broken equipment, fallen trees, excess garbage, etc.)
  • Ambassadors are not required to fix, repair, or perform any duty that you are not comfortable doing. Just contact the Parks and Recreation office and we will take care of it promptly.
  • Park Ambassadors receive recognition with a sign located at the adopted park and a t-shirt! We ask for Park Ambassadors to wear their free t-shirt at the park when evaluating the area.
