The Adopt-A-Park Program is a volunteer experience for residents, businesses and civic-minded organizations to partner 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 flowerbeds, painting, spreading playground mulch including safety surfacing and other manual labor. 

PBC Parks’ Adopt-A-Park Program is designed so everyone can participate. From one-time experiences to reoccurring projects, groups choose how often they make a difference. There is no fee to participate. A fee may apply to reserve large picnic pavilions. 

The Parks and Recreation Department’s Volunteer Services has limited cleanup supplies available to loan on a first-come-first-served basis.
