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.
