Calling All Volunteers to Support Our Parks

Published on August 02, 2021

Budget reductions from the pandemic have resulted in significant reductions in parks and recreation staff, particularly within the maintenance department. While this presents challenges like increased trash in parks and less freshly planted flower beds, Denver Parks & Recreation will continue to ensure that our parks remain accessible to people, as places they can go, to find enjoyment and solitude and practice a healthy and active lifestyle. There are ample volunteer opportunities at Denver Parks and Recreation for people who are interested in going beyond picking up after themselves and playing a more active role in the care of our parks. From park cleanups and playground maintenance to plant care and gardening, a full list of volunteer opportunities can be accessed by visiting the Denver Parks and Recreation Volunteer site
