Volunteers Cleaning up a ParkThank you for your commitment to the New Brighton Community. The Adopt-A-Park program is designed to encourage partnerships between citizen groups and the New Brighton Parks and Recreation Department to help maintain and enhance parks in our individual community. It is a fun, educational, and worthwhile program that allows groups and individuals to take an active role in the beautification of our community.

Volunteer Commitment

Pick up litter in and around your adopted site at least four times per year. Commitment is for one year. Responsibilities will include picking up paper, cans, broken glass (when this can be done safely), other garbage and placing it in trash bags. You are welcome to perform beautification or service projects upon proper approval, (i.e. planting flowers, wood chipping paths, painting picnic tables or benches).

Our Commitments

We will support your group's efforts, as well as provide bags and dispose of the trash you collect.


The program depends upon the common sense and responsibility of individual participants. No power tools such as lawnmowers, tractors or chain saws are permitted to be used by volunteers. Participants shall hold the city harmless for injury or property damage that might have been prevented by their actions.
