What are the Adopt-A-Park Guidelines?

Guidelines include:

  • The parks/trails will be assigned to groups on a first-come, first-served basis to be determined by the Adopt-A-Park coordinator.
  • Each group will receive volunteer waiver forms that must be completed on or before each workday. Waiver forms should be returned to the park office.
  • All participants over the age of 18 will be required to complete a background check form provided by the Town of Harrisburg.
  • Work is to be completed during park hours only.
  • Must be a minimum of 10 participants in a group to apply.
  • All participants should be over the age of 18 or accompanied by an adult.
  • Groups are to commit to a minimum of 160 hours of work per year. Example: 10 participants times 16 hours equals 160 hours
  • Minimum of 40 hours completed before establishing ownership plaque.
  • Appropriate clothing and gloves for weather and work should be worn at all times.
  • All participants are to follow the park policies set by the Town of Harrisburg’s Parks and Recreation department. Failure to do so will result in removal from the program.
  • Special projects that go beyond the scope of regular maintenance must be approved by the Parks and Recreation Director.
  • Groups that cannot fulfill their commitment to work on scheduled dates will risk being removed from the Adopt-A-Park program.
  • Have fun and be Safe!!!
