Where Southern Hospitality Begins

Adopt-A-Park Program

The City of Portsmouth’s Adopt-A-Park program is a great opportunity for local organizations and individuals to get involved with their community. The City owns and maintains 13 Parks that are available for the entire area to enjoy. We take great pride in offering this amenity to the community, and hope that the community values the opportunities that these parks offer.

The Adopt-A-Park program’s goal is to get the community involved in keeping the City’s park system clean and visually appealing. Organizations are encouraged to put together a work plan that could entail scheduled clean-up days, landscaping projects, or other improvement projects in our parks. This plan can be tailored to the organization’s resources and could range from projects scheduled for 1-2 days a year, to efforts that would be on a more continual basis. The City is eager to discuss any opportunities there may be for an organization to get involved, and will provide guidance from our Service Director to assist in your improvement process.

For all approved projects, the City will place a sign in the project area recognizing the volunteer efforts of the organization.
