The Adopt-A-Park Program is designed to encourage community volunteers to work hands on to help keep Reno’s parks clean, attractive Adopt-A-Park Logoand safe for everyone. This program offers the opportunity for people to get more involved with their community in a way that promotes pride, appreciation and awareness. The program is open to individuals, neighborhood associations, civic groups, faith-based organizations, service organizations, school groups, businesses and other community organizations throughout the City of Reno. It is a great way to give back to the community and to have a sense of accomplishment. Adopting groups develop teamwork, camaraderie and company pride. It also gives adopters a chance to have a hands-on role in keeping their park clean and beautiful.

 

What Is the Adopt-A-Park Time Commitment?

The volunteer individual/organization commits to a minimum number of volunteer hours per year spread over two or three volunteer days at different times of the year. The minimum time commitment varies with the type of park adopted. The general guidelines are:

  • Pocket Parks – adopter commits to 25 volunteer hours per year with two volunteer days. Sites are typically less than one acre and have a limited range of amenities.
  • Neighborhood Parks - adopter commits to 75 volunteer hours per year with two or three volunteer days. Sites are typically between 3 and 15 acres and have a range of park amenities.
  • Community Parks - adopter commits to 150 volunteer hours per year with three volunteer days. Sites range in size from 15 to 49 acres and are the highest use parks because of size and type of amenities. Special financial considerations apply to the City’s signature parks, including Idlewild, Virginia Lake, Mira Loma and Teglia’s Paradise. Contact the Park Maintenance Office for details.
