Adopt-a-Flowerbed Program

The Parks and Recreation Department encourages public involvement in the enhancement of community parks and facilities. The Adopt-a-Flowerbed program is a volunteer-based activity where area volunteer groups "adopt" and maintain designated flowerbeds in Parker. View available flowerbeds.

Program Guidelines

  • The flowerbed or planter should be adopted for one complete growing season (tentatively May through September)
  • Adopters may either be an individual or a group, however groups must identify one person to be the contact with the Parks and Recreation liaison
  • Planting is restricted to only those areas identified by Parks and Recreation as Adopt-a-Flowerbed locations
  • Sign up is on a first come, first served basis

Volunteer Responsibilities

  • Remove and dispose of litter and weeds
  • Provide own hand tools for area maintenance
  • Notify park liaison of problems or concerns
  • Visit the site frequently to ensure good health of plant material (suggested bi-weekly)
  • If applicable, maintain adequate signage of plant or display boards
  • Install mulch provided by the Town when needed
  • Plant and move plants approved by the Parks and Recreation liaison

Parks & Recreation Responsibilities

  • Monitor and adjust water requirements
  • Acknowledge the adoption through signage placed by the flowerbed or planter and/or provide signage of dedication if the adopter so desires
  • If at any time the Parks and Recreation liaison deems the flowerbed or planter to be unsightly, contact will be made with the individual adopter or adopter team lead
  • If identified issues are not corrected within five business days, the Town will take over the maintenance of the bed and may offer the bed to another group or individual
  • Winter\spring preparation of beds
