The Adopt-a-Park Program is a great community service activity that gives the citizens of Rochester the opportunity to participate in helping to keep the parks clean and looking good.  The primary duties of participants is to pick up litter and report any vandalism or unsafe conditions they observe in the parks.  So if your group, organization, family or yourself are interested in doing something to make the community a better place to live, work and play, consider Adopting-a-Park.
