Adopt-a-Park Wants You!

Summer is upon us! It’s time to get out and enjoy the sunny Maine weather and what better way than getting directly involved in beautifying your local community? Heart of Biddeford  in concert with the City has an “Adopt a Park” program, and we’re  always looking for dedicated and enthusiastic individuals to help us care for our 12 urban parks.

Individual volunteers, neighborhood groups and local businesses donate hundreds of hours each year for cleanups, plantings, weeding and other essential projects that help our parks thrive as centers for relaxation and recreation for the whole community.

You are in the perfect position to provide valuable service to your neighborhood while nurturing your connections to the community. No experience required, Biddeford Adopt a Park is here to provide guidance and support to anyone interested in helping us with our mission.

For more information about how you or your organization can adopt a park, or just volunteer occasionally, please contact Taylor Carter, an Americorp Vista serving through the Heart of Biddeford.
