Adopt-A-Park Program

Looking for a volunteer opportunity that allows you to enjoy the outdoors and set your own schedule? Make a positive impact in your community with the Adopt-A-Park program!

Here's how you can get involved:

1. Adopt your favourite park, playground, shrub bed, green strip or cemetery. The impact of your work is profound and there is no minimum time commitment

Some common tasks are:

  • Weed control
  • Litter pickup
  • Spreading mulch
  • Checking for damage/vandalism
  • Shrub/flower bed maintenance

2. One-time litter cleanup. Choose your park and grab some friends or co-workers. These cleanups are a great team building activity for organizations or groups. 

3. Neighbourhood cleanup. Get involved and take an active role in improving your neighbhourhood by organizing a community cleanup. 

4. Stay informed, stay inspired! Subscribe to our Volunteer Newsletter to be the first to know about opportunities to make a difference in your community. 

5. Join an upcoming community litter cleanup! 

Join us in celebrating Earth Day at Legacy Park! Eart Day Cleanup
