The Adopt-a-Park Program is a new volunteer opportunity that builds a sense of community pride and ownership around every park/facility in the City of Idaho Falls. The City of Idaho Falls Department of Parks and Recreation believe that the success of the Idaho Falls park's system depends on the support, assistance, advocacy and enthusiasm of community volunteers. Through the Adopt-a-Park Program, we seek to find the best practices and strategies to work together to enhance the park system.
