APF serves as the principal partner for community groups and other organizations wishing to join the City of Austin's Parks and Recreation Department's Adopt-a-Park Program. We host over 90 citizen groups who have agreed to contribute funds and volunteer time towards park improvement projects.
Special projects, as well as typical workdays, are carefully planned through collaboration with PARD staff to ensure that overused and under-funded parks get the attention they need, and that volunteer's efforts are successful.
We guide potential park leaders through the application process, and also provide technical expertise, training, and project management services for more complex projects. Volunteers are encouraged to borrow tools from our Tool Warehouse, and to recruit volunteers and financial support for their projects through our website.
The City Parks Department now offers an more information on their website. There you can download forms and apply to be an adopter. Austin Parks Foundation is here to answer questions, advise on projects, and provide resources once you've adopted the park - call us at 477.1566 to find out how we can assist you in the process!
Consider creating and improving wildlife habitat. Wildlife Austin promotes the creation and conservation of wildlife habitats through community-wide collaboration and public education, and helps bridge existing city initiatives that encourage a well balanced and healthy urban environment for people and wildlife.
