Adopt A Park
The Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Adopt-A-Park Program is always looking for new volunteers and groups to enhance city parks and trails.
The citizen volunteer or group agrees to maintain the designated park, trail or open space quarterly for at least one year. The volunteer or group of volunteers is asked to sign an Adopt-A-Park agreement. This agreement is renewed on a yearly basis.
Greenway Volunteer Program
The Greenway Volunteer Program is designed to engage current Greenway users to help be the eyes and ears for the Raleigh Police and Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Departments.
Greenway volunteers generally patrol Greenways a minimum of eight hours a month and do not need to act as a volunteer every time they use a Greenway. Greenway volunteers have basic knowledge of the Greenway system, including its rules and regulations,and they are also able to recognize unsafe conditions on the Greenway.
Goals of Greenway Volunteers
- Promote Greenway courtesy and safety
- Provide general information to Greenway users
- Assist when help is needed
- Set a good example by obeying greenway rules
