Adopt-a-Park Program

Volunteers adding mulch to a flower bed

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

Through the use of volunteers, designated areas will be spruced up by removing litter and debris, controlling weeds, caring for plants, mulching around trees and planting areas, raking leaves, identifying hazards, reporting vandalism, and planting trees, shrubs, and other approved vegetation. The program also aims to educate Dallas residents about the importance of our parks, open spaces, and trails.
