Trail Adopted by the Chandler FamilyThe possibilities of Adopt-A-Park are unlimited, graffiti removal and elements of other adoptive programs can be combined with the Adopt-A-Park program to enhance and maintain our park and trail legacy for the future. The City will help you choose a park, trail or dyke section and provide garbage bags for each clean up, pick up collected litter, and erect signage recognizing your efforts. Contact the City of Richmond Parks Department to find out how you can be involved!
