There are many ways that you can get involved in Parks and show your support for the exceptional quality of life that we have all grown to love here in Davis. Without the support of community members like yourself, who are willing to lend a hand, donate time and money toward these public spaces, City staff would not be able to keep Davis safe, clean and green for all to enjoy.
ADOPT A PARK
The Adopt A Park program is a community volunteer based program, consisting of both organizations and individuals, who assist in the general care and maintenance of City parks and greenbelts. Common tasks include graffiti removal, litter pick up, mulching, raking, sweeping, and weeding. Adopt A Park volunteers typically donate 1-2 hours per week minimum, with a one (1) year commitment to the assigned area.
