Adopt a Park
Red Deer’s Waskasoo Park system is the envy of many cities. You can help protect the parks and the wildlife that inhabit them by adopting a park.
Your commitment can be as simple or as involved as you choose. With Adopt a Park, you can work as an individual, group or business to protect the green spaces that make living in Red Deer so unique.
What would I have to do?
Adopting a park is a commitment, but the amount of time you put in can vary.
Here are some examples of what adopting a park or trail can mean:
- Picking up litter along creeks, trails, manicured parks or natural areas.
- Watching for alien weed invaders and managing them as necessary.
- Keeping an eye open for natural damage or dangers, vandalism, inappropriate use, and reporting such activity to Parks staff or the RCMP as appropriate.
Thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers who spend countless hours beautifying our parks and natural areas. We appreciate your dedication and admire your passion for our City.
