The Adopt-a-Field Program is a new volunteer opportunity that builds a sense of community pride and ownership around every park ball field 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-Field Program, we seek to find the best practices and strategies to work together to enhance the park system improving our ball fields for all to enjoy.
