What is Adopt-a-Park?
Our program that allows individuals, businesses, or groups to take a proactive role in the beautification of local parks.
Who can adopt a park or other public site?
Anyone: Individuals, corporations, and businesses, neighborhood associations, church groups, community service organizations, youth groups, families, and friends.
What do adopters do?
Pick up litter (a minimum of at least quarterly), perform supplemental mowing, plant and maintain existing flower beds, make landscape improvements and other types of year-round care and maintenance. Park adopters are asked to make a minimum of a one-year commitment.
Adopting a park gives you the satisfaction of knowing that you are maintaining a beautiful place that everyone can enjoy. It gives recognition to your special gift of time, talent, and labor with a sign at your adopted site displaying your name or the name of your group or organization. It lets people know that you care about our city.
Are adopters recognized?
Yes. All park adopters receive an official Certificate of Adoption for their adopted park(s). Complimentary signage is placed at the park recognizing the group for their adoption. The sign is placed at the adopted site and serves as a visible statement of adopter’s ongoing commitment to maintaining the area as a resource for the community.
What is the official process for adopting a park?
An adoption agreement is signed between the adopter(s), and the City of Moore which solidifies the relationship
How do we conduct a clean‐up?
Adopters and volunteer groups working within their respective adoption sites may organize themselves to clean up their park on a schedule that suits their needs. The Moore Parks and Recreation Department does not require advance notification unless changes to the park are planned or if coordination of trash removal is needed.
