We Love Our Volunteers! 

Every agency knows the importance and impact of volunteers. We invite you to explore these opportunities with us! 

You can help us with projects in our parks including organized park cleanups or individual tasks. We can always use some help picking up litter and leaves. Some of our volunteers bring their painting, gardening or building skills to us! 
We count on volunteers at our community centers to coach youth athletic leagues, tutor in our after school programs and teach activities.


There are many ways to be involved with us as a volunteer.

If you have an idea or questions, just give us call.

Adopt-A-Park

The success and livelihood of this non-budgeted City program depends on active volunteer participation from neighborhood associations, community groups, and individuals.

The Adopt-A-Park Program offers interested participants the opportunity to contribute to the community and share their special talents by working together in community and supporting staff in organized horticultural activities.

Opportunities include planting and maintaining strategically located flower beds and gardens, supporting horticultural greenhouse operations and participating in other organized park maintenance tasks throughout the park system.

Little Rock Parks & Recreation oversees and maintains in excess of 5,000 developed and undeveloped acres of parkland in 62 parks with limited resources. Available adoptable areas are in numerous park locations in and around Little Rock.

Contact Little Rock Parks & Recreation to discuss site availability for adoption (501) 371-6856.
