Nederland Adopt-a-Park Program


To protect and enhance Nederland’s parks, trails, and open space through ongoing volunteer support and special projects.

About the Program

The Adopt-A-Park program allows individuals or groups to adopt a specific park, trail, or open space area. Through adoption, volunteers agree to assist with the general care and maintenance of the park as well as report to the town any items of concern. Volunteer tasks may include: litter control, graffiti reporting, weeding/raking playgrounds, sweeping shelters, cleaning picnic tables, restocking doggie bags, and reporting vandalism. Volunteers may also perform other improvement ideas and projects as suggested and approved. The Town of Nederland will place a sign in your park crediting you or your organization for your assistance.
