Adopt-A-Park, Trail or Dyke
The City of Richmond's Adopt-A-Park, Trail or Dyke Program encourages participants to contribute to the maintenance and care of Richmond's parks, dykes, trails and walkways. A partial list of possible work includes:
- litter control
- mowing grass areas
- watering gardens and trees
- edging grass and garden areas
- weed control
- reporting vandalism and repair needs to the City
- park patrol
- illegal dumping removal
There are many ways of supporting this program including graffiti removal and elements of other adoptive programs. City staff can help with the choosing of a park, trail or dyke section and provide garbage bags for each clean up with litter pick up. On-site recognition signs are also part of this program.
For more information and ways to get involved, contact the Parks Program Coordinator at 604-247-4453.
