The city's Adopt-A-Park Program greatly improves the appearance of city parks throughout Trotwood. It eases the load on Public Works crews, enabling them to devote more time to other maintenance projects, and it rewards volunteers with great civic pride in knowing they've made a huge difference in their community.
How It Works
Groups or organizations adopt an assigned park and agree to visit it at least 3 times a year to help keep it clean and report conditions that may require further attention by Public Works crews.
Adopt-A-Park participants are asked to:
Clean and rake children's play areas
Clean picnic tables and benches
Pick up litter
Plant flowers or trees
Report unsafe conditions and structures needing repair
Report vandalism damage, graffiti, and unclean restrooms
Sweep court surfaces, trails, and sidewalks
The city will:
Assist with safety meetings
Pick up collected litter at specific prearranged park locations
Post Adopt-A-Park signs recognizing the volunteer group at the park entrance
Provide gloves, safety vests, trash pickers and garbage bags
