FOR GRADES : ALL | FOR AGES: ALL
Adopt-A-Park: Roberto Clemente Park
The primary purpose of the Adopt-A-Park (AAP) program is to promote partnerships between community members, groups, and businesses to assist the Parks staff with routine maintenance, clean up, and beautification of parks, open spaces, and trails, creating a beautiful, clean environment for all to enjoy.
Through the use of volunteers, designated areas will be spruced up by removing litter and debris, controlling weeds, caring for plants, mulching around trees and planting areas, raking leaves, identifying hazards, reporting vandalism, and planting trees, shrubs, and other approved vegetation. The program also aims to educate residents about the importance of our parks, open spaces, and trails.
You’ll Get To…
- AAP provides opportunities for individuals and groups to help improve and maintain our Robert Clemente park. As a volunteer, you will have a unique opportunity to donate services to the community and enjoy the results of your hard work. AAP volunteers become stewards of public lands by working to improve park areas in a meaningful way for all to enjoy
AAP unites and supports all people interested in improving Fort Myers’s neighborhood open
spaces and trails. Our volunteers can include:
- Senior Citizens
- Neighborhood Associations
- Youth Groups
- Church Groups
- Hiking and Biking Enthusiasts
Often, park visitors notice litter left behind by careless park users, and may feel frustrated that our parks are treated this way. Now you can put those feelings into action. Given the 1 acre of park, it is often challenging to keep up with the tremendous use of our open spaces. Your volunteer efforts can make the difference in achieving the high standards we have for these important areas in our community.
