The Adopt-A-Park program brings Tempe neighbors and community members together in an effort to maintain our neighborhood parks. 

Clean, green and safe parks are an essential part of creating and maintaining a friendly and healthy community. Tempe’s parks help increase the visual appeal of neighborhoods and provide a safe place for neighbors to gather, friends to meet and kids to play.

The Adopt-A-Park program offers neighborhood groups, community organizations and local businesses a way to help enhance the appearance, safety and cleanliness of these important entities.

Duties for Adoptive Groups include:

  • Picking up trash and litter
  • Raking leaves, pulling weeds and fluffing playground sand
  • Sanitizing playground equipment with soap and water
  • Sweeping all hard surfaces (i.e. basketball courts, sidewalks, ramadas, etc.
  • Reporting any vandalism, dirty restrooms, unsafe conditions and/or necessary repairs
  • Special projects that may be assigned by parks and recreation staff

Benefits of Adopting a Neighborhood Park include:

  • Makes a positive difference in the community
  • Serves as a team-building exercise for the organization
  • City recognition of the adoptive group

Applications for the Adopt-A-Park program are accepted year-round.
