When you commit to the Canton Parks & Recreation Adopt-a-Park program, not only are you committing to beautifying a park but you are allowing your employees and members get involved in a project that contributes to the quality of life in our community.

Several of our most dedicated volunteer groups have committed to adopting a park property. Park adoption can consist of a variety of responsibilities based on the skills, abilities, and availability of a group. 

Common activities are painting, weeding, mulching, landscaping and litter control. Participants receive recognition in the form of a park sign and one free rental of the park property each year.


We can’t take all the credit for Canton Parks! It is because of these organizations and their volunteers that actively participate in the clean-up and beautification of the parks.
