Adopt-a-Park Program


br> Adopt a Park is a public service program which allows volunteers to aid in beautification, identify safety hazards, and help maintain the City of Northfield Park System. It is an excellent way for citizens and organizations to make a personal contribution to the community.

This is an effort by the City of Northfield to implement a program utilizing volunteer's expertise and experience to supplement the work of city staff. By working together we hope to help citizens become better connected to their community.

How the Program Works

  • A group of citizens, through common interest, agrees to discuss the opportunity to adopt a particular park that may or may not be in their neighborhood.
  • This particular group then discusses the opportunity with city staff in order to understand the responsibilities and limitations on adopting a park.
  • The Adopt-a-Park group agrees to a minimum of a 3-year commitment to the project.
  • Park sites are chosen by city staff and are then available on a first come, first served basis.
  • The frequency of clean up is once during the spring, once during the summer and once during the fall.
