Adopt a Park!
Charlottesville Va Parks and Grounds
Why not have fun along the way?
Join with the Charlottesville Parks and Grounds Division in a unique partnership called Adopt a Park.  When you decide to adopt a park you will have a chance to maintain the parts of the park that need a little help... painting playground equipment, planting and caring for trees, shrubs and flowers, litter control, etc.

It's a great opportunity to get out and meet people while giving back to your community, a way to learn something new and have fun along the way!

How much work will it be?
It's up to you!  Some groups come in once a year to plant and mulch trees; others maintain flower beds and shrubs year-round.  Some groups work together on a routine basis while others have become one-time partners on a big project to benefit their park.

I don't have any experience...
That's OK.  Parks and Grounds has a staff of trained personnel that will always be available to offer any assistance you might need.  They will also furnish all the tools and supplies that are needed to do the job.

Let's get started!
Just call the Parks and Grounds Division at (434) 970-3585 or (434) 970-3589 and ask for the Volunteer Coordinator or send email.  We will work with you to plan how you can become involved in caring for your park.
