Can you or your organization spare two hours a month to help keep one of our City parks or trails in beautiful condition? The City of Manitou Springs is seeking volunteers to perform basic park or trail maintenance two hours per month from April to October. Maintenance includes raking, trash pick-up, sweeping and reporting any broken equipment to the city. Groups are asked to commit for one year and provide tools appropriate for the work being done. The City may be able to help with some of the equipment, on a case-by-case basis.

In recognition of your support, the City will post a sign prominently at your park or trail, and you will also have acknowledgement on the City web page. Each volunteer must submit a Volunteer Waiver and a Maintenance Agreement Form prior to working. Parental permission is required for participants under the age of 18.

The deadline to apply is 5:00 p.m. on March 1, 2024. City of Manitou Springs Parks and Recreation Staff will review applications after the deadline and seniority will be given to current adoptees in good standing per maintenance requirements. 

For more information on this program including the application, waiver, and a complete list of available parks to adopt, please visit the Adopt A Park Program.
