How to Adopt a Park
An Adopt-A-Park partnership form (PDF) must be completed for each group, and a participant release form (PDF) must be signed by each potential participant.

These forms will be available at the Parks and Leisure Services Administration Office, on the Parks and Leisure Services’ website or emailed to you.

The first cleanup date will need to be scheduled with an Adopt-A-Park staff. A staff member will give a brief orientation to the group/individual on the first workday.

You will need to know before you fill out your partnership:
  • A contact person for the group. This person is responsible for coordinating with the Adopt-A-Park staff the first workday date and reporting any issues to the park staff
  • Three tentative dates in the year that you wish to work in a park
  • What park you would like to adopt. The parks available for adoption will be posted on the Parks and Leisure website or call 254-298-5690.

The partnership form, participant release, and volunteer hour forms may be dropped off at the Parks and Leisure Services Administration Office, faxed at 254-298-5541, or mailed to:
