Saco Parks and Recreation is excited to continue our new volunteer initiative, “Stewards of Saco Parks”, to help support parks in our community. The goal of this group is to cultivate outdoor social environments for visitors, to support ecological habitats, and to enhance the aesthetic appearance of city parks.
This collaboration between citizens and city government will promote civic engagement of the community while creating a connection to our open spaces. Sign up below for volunteer opportunities throughout the season in Saco!
Spring and Summer Info
Join us throughout this spring and summer to plant, prune, and play in Saco’s beautiful green spaces. Once a month, we will visit a new park to work collectively on a project for 90 minutes, then break to enjoy what the grounds have to offer. As we alternate between locations, projects will vary according to what is needed for the park location. Tasks could include planting a new flower bed, raking leaves, weeding, litter clean up, graffiti removal, trail maintenance, etc.
