The city's Adopt-a-Park [PDF] program offers residents and local groups an opportunity to assist the city in maintaining and enhancing public parks and open spaces.
Adopt-a-Park participants agree to a minimum two-year commitment. Park adopters pick up litter at least three times per calendar year: 1) April or May, 2) June or July and 3) August or September.
Additional or one-time cleanups are welcomed. Register your cleanup dates online.
The Park Watch program is aimed at keeping our parks clean and safe. You can help by taking an active role in reporting any disturbances or vandalism they see happening in our local parks.Residents are encouraged to observe and report on:
- Illegal or suspicious activity - Call the police department at 952-233-9400 or 911 in an emergency
- Violations of city park ordinance
- Hazardous conditions
- Park maintenance needs

Be observant of such events noting time, place, description of vehicles and/or persons (including height, weight, clothing and direction of travel), as well as any other identifying information.
Direct park maintenance and repair issues to the Public Works Department at 952-233-9550 or Report a Problem.
