The pride we take in our parks comes from the citizens who make it what it is every day—an environment for people to stay active, socialize and appreciate our great city’s natural beauty. Below are some ways that you can help maintain and improve our parks:
If you witness vandalism, or happen to see vandalized property within one of our parks, please report the vandalism or a need for repairs

Check out potential Eagle Scout and Gold Award Projects
that can help make our parks even better.
Would you like to dedicate a bench to memorialize a loved one? Our Bench Buddies
program allows the purchase of benches in our parks, with individual dedications on personalized placards.
We respectfully request that all of our patrons refrain from feeding duck and geese
. Not only may it cause illness, it results in water pollution and more.
Individuals, families, groups, businesses and organizations are encouraged to adopt a section of the city by conducting scheduled litter pick ups. Learn more about the Adopt-a-Programs
