Adopt a Park

Imagine a park with your group's name on it. It's easy; all you have to do is Adopt a Park and commit to keeping it clean.

The Adopt a Park program encourages families, businesses, schools and community groups to become actively involved in their local parks. By keeping this area clean, you will be promoting a positive image and discouraging litter.

To recognize your group's efforts, a special sign will be erected in your adopted park, featuring the group's name, and a Certificate of Recognition from the Mayor will be presented to your group.

As an Adopt a Park partner, your group will:

  • coordinate a minimum of 3 cleanups per year
  • report any vandalism
  • regularly visit your park to monitor its upkeep and report maintenance requirements to the City

The City of Pickering will:

  • help you choose an appropriate park
  • provide you with free cleanup supplies
  • help with maintenance requirements
  • erect a recognition sign in the park
  • provide a certificate of appreciation
