The Peachtree City Parks and Recreation Department’s “Adopt-A-Park” Program is now in its fifth year with 41 individuals, groups or organizations participating.

“The Certificates of Recognition have been sent out in the mail,” said Adopt-A-Park representative Joyce Williams. “Every year we send out a certificate to show our appreciation to those currently in the program.” The Recreation Department commends the support of these volunteers for their continuing service.

The Recreation Department has several areas not yet adopted (Big Pine Park, Common Area around the Roller Hockey Rink, Resurgens Playground at Kedron, Rockspray Pond), and several areas in larger parks where they can use more participants (South 74 Soccer/Baseball Complex, Jim Meade Fields, Riley Field, Rubicon Tot Lot).

More than one individual, group or organization can adopt a park. Some parks have more than one adoptee and each particular group may choose to do a cleanup at the beginning, middle, or end of the month providing continual service. Participants in the program agree to pick up litter and or debris once a month. Participants are recognized for their efforts by an Adopt-A-Park sign at the parks with the names of the individual, organization, or business.

For more information on joining the Adopt-A-Park program, please call Joyce Williams at the Recreation Administration Office Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. at 770-631-2542.
