Adopt a Park Program

Volunteers Clean-up.jpg

Often, park visitors notice litter left behind by park users and may feel frustrated that our parks are treated this way. Now you can put those feelings into action.

With 4000+ acres of premier park land and 50+ miles of trails, it is often challenging to keep up with the tremendous use of our open spaces. Having a strong group of volunteer park stewards to support the park system in Prince William County, your volunteer efforts can make the difference in achieving the high standards we have for these important areas in our community.

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

The purpose of the Adopt-a-Park program is to promote partnerships between community members, groups, and businesses to assist the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism staff with routine maintenance, clean up, and beautification of our parks, open spaces, and trails – creating a beautiful and clean environment for all to enjoy.

Using volunteers, designated areas within our parks and trails system will be spruced up by removing litter, debris, controlling weeds, planting of trees and plants, mulching, and identifying hazards and eliminating of such. This program also aims to educate county residents about the importance of our parks, open spaces, and trails.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

This volunteer program is designed to encourage individuals or established groups to help improve and maintain our county’s parks, trails and open spaces. Students can use their volunteer time toward community service hours too! Local businesses are encouraged to join the Adopt-a-Park program and receive recognition for their stewardship of the environment. Your group or organization can help preserve, protect and enhance our county parks. Join us and help make a difference in your community!
