Volunteer Opportunities with Parks and Recreation

Granite Park VolunteersParks Volunteer Program

Volunteers are invited to help with various stewardship activities in city parks, trails, and natural areas.  Activities vary by season, and training and tools will be provided, so no prior experience is needed, only the desire to help. Opportunities are available in all neighborhoods, and many activities are great for large groups, families, or youth groups with adult supervisors. Volunteers should wear closed toed shoes and are encouraged to bring a pair of work gloves.  One day or short-term service activities are also available. 

Please visit the Partners in Parks Program page for more information.
