Now is the time to get involved in your local parks and trails!  Adopt-a-Park! or Trail!  Get outside and help your community by signing up for regular trash patrols, maintenance projects, planting, garden maintenance, and more. 

Check out the attached application and agreement to see what you can do!

In May 2011 the City of Homer established an Adopt-a-Park program to accommodate and promote volunteer participation in conserving and maintaining City parks, trails, and recreational facilities. If you or your business or organization would like to adopt a park or trail, please fill out and return the attached application and agreement.  From special one time projects to weekly trash clean up there is something to fit everyone's time.

Our first official adopting group is the Homer Kachemak Bay Rotary Club.  They have adopted Ben Walters Park for the next year.  In addition to routine clean up, maintenance, and beautification,  Rotary will be providing firewood for ice skaters and skiers on the lake.

Although not official adopters, Families First also came through with a work party in June 2011 at Bayview Park.  New equipment was purchased and installed.  HoPP (Homer Playground Project) is planning to adopt the wonderful new playground at Hornaday Park.
