What is the Adopt-a-Park or Garden program?
Savage is fortunate to have 20 city parks that add beauty to our community as well as provide recreational and open space for our residents and visitors to enjoy. Adopt-a-Park or Garden is a volunteer program for people interested in taking an active role in the upkeep and regular maintenance of our parks and gardens, including picking up litter and planting flowers. This also helps extend your tax dollars by enabling City staff to focus on other critical services and projects.
This program is suitable for community groups, businesses, churches, scout and 4-H groups, students, individual citizens, and families who can adopt a park or garden of their choice (providing it has not already been adopted). We just ask that Adopt-a-Park volunteers visit the park at least three times per year to pick up litter, check for vandalism/damage, and report any repairs. Cleanups are especially important in early spring after the snow melts, and in the fall before it snows. Adopt-a-Garden volunteers are asked to plant and maintain (weed/water) the flowerbeds throughout the growing season.
