Is your troop, organization, or business looking for ways to serve the community?  Are you an individual in need of community service opportunities to further your education, or a family that would like to do something to spruce up their neighborhood or favorite park?  The Hilliard Recreation and Parks Department is always in need of dependable volunteers for community events, park clean up and park projects.

The City of Hilliard’s Adopt-A-Park program offers two ways for individuals, local businesses and groups to take an active role in the beautification and maintenance of our community’s growing park system.

Donation Sponsorships
Monetary donations may be made to recognize those who have made an impact on the Hilliard community or to celebrate a special occasion or life of a loved one. You may request to support a specific park or purchase a park amenity in accordance with Hilliard’s public space design standards. When possible, a recognition plaque will be affixed to or near the amenity.

Park Volunteer Sponsorships

This program is designed for businesses or groups to assist with basic year-round mulching, weeding, small-scale gardening, painting and other activities. The City will help you choose a role that is most needed and also the best way to recognize your volunteers.
