What is the Adopt-A-Park Program?
The Adopt-A-Park Program is a volunteer experience for residents and businesses to work with the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department to keep our community’s parks, beaches and trails clean and attractive. The program provides participants with a sense of park ownership and an outlet to give back to the community and protect our natural environment. Opportunities include maintaining the parks, beaches, and trails by picking up litter, maintaining flower beds, painting, spreading playground mulch including safety surfacing and other manual labor.
