Parks & Recreation volunteers

Parks and Recreation is excited to announce a Comprehensive Volunteer Program that will give residents an opportunity to leave a lasting impact on Parks and Recreation facilities, greenspace and programs. Volunteer activities can be short-term, such as a morning planting trees or long-term, such as being a therapeutic recreation buddy for outings or classes.

What do you like to do?

Current opportunities include:

  • Assisting with a special event such as Kite Fest, The Bluegrass 10,000, the Thriller Parade or Friday Night Flicks.
  • Scheduling time throughout the year to clean up your favorite park and/or trail with a group or an individual basis.
  • Serving as a golf “starter” or marshal.
  • Serving as a greens assistant.
  • Serving as a golf cart “gopher” and/or cart washer.
  • Serving as a clerical assistant for the Therapeutic Recreation program.
  • Serving as a Therapeutic Recreation “buddy”.
  • Working with a team of individuals charged with organizing and cataloging decades worth of Parks memorabilia. 
  • Creating your own individual or group volunteer activity.

Volunteering with Parks will provide opportunities to meet people, make the park system better than it is and to get outdoors
