Adopt a Park

 

GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (June 16, 2010)  Local businesses, organizations and groups have adopted many of Goodyear's parks, but there are still plenty of parks in need of some tender loving care.

 

When you, your organization or business adopts a park, the City posts a sign prominently displaying your group's logo and other details. The names of the individuals and/or organizations and their logos will be included on the City's park information webpage.

 

The Adopt a Park program involves a one-year commitment. Volunteers agree to visit their parks once a month to pick up trash, rake sand, pull weeds, remove graffiti and make lists of any broken equipment. Some groups that have already adopted parks include Cactus Patch Girl Scouts, Estrella Mountain Elementary School PTO, Goodyear Firefighters Local 4005, Palm Valley Church, Pioneer Ford, Phoenix Military Entrance Processing Station, Refinery Christian Church, Super TARGET, and the YMCA Teen Action Council.  

 

Now's your chance to encourage your service organizations, youth groups, church groups, clubs, neighborhoods and even extended families to sign on for a meaningful activity that really makes a difference in your community. Many volunteers enjoy combining their Adopt a Park tasks with a picnic, outdoor games, or old-fashioned relaxation.

 

To learn more about the Adopt a Park program, and to find out which parks still need someone to adopt them, contact Judi Switanek at 623-882-7807 or email judi.switanek@goodyearaz.gov.
