Adopt-a-Park and Adopt-a-Road applications continue to be accepted at this time. We thank all our Adopt-a-Park/Adopt-a-Road participants for adhering to pandemic-related provincial restrictions and public health guidance in any clean-up projects.
Adopt-a-Park or Road is a city-wide program that encourages community involvement in the care and maintenance of parks and roadways. It is a partnership between volunteers and the City. The program is open to community groups and individuals of all ages who want to take an active role in enhancing the quality of life in our community.
Volunteers take on park or roadway clean up projects to improve safety and promote a healthy natural environment by keeping the City clean, green, and free of litter and graffiti. In addition, by removing the debris and litter from the City streets, it ultimately protects the water quality of our rivers and fish habitats.
Adopt volunteers make a commitment to cleaning up a park or roadway:
- A minimum of twice a year - once in the spring and once in the fall
- For a period of two to five years to provide continuity
To acknowledge these important efforts, a sign presenting the name of the adopting individual or group is displayed on the park or roadway throughout the adoption period.
