People value the time they spend in city parks, whether walking a dog, playing basketball, or having a picnic. Along with these expected leisure amenities, parks can also provide measurable health benefits, from providing direct contact with nature and a cleaner environment, to opportunities for physical activity and social interaction. Sometimes, communities believe that they cannot afford to "grow smart" by conserving open space. But accumulating evidence indicates that open space conservation and the creation of city parks are investments that produce significant community economic and health benefits. Boynton Beach has great outdoor spaces for people of all ages and abilities to play and grow in nature.

Call (561) 742-6236 to learn more. The purpose of this program is to enlist the community's involvement with selective maintenance within a park in order to maintain a clean park environment for all to enjoy. Tasks may include trash pickup, graffiti reporting, weeding/raking playgrounds, sweeping shelters, cleaning picnic tables, mulching trees/shrubs, and reporting vandalism.
Adopters can also help with special projects, such as graffiti cover-up and painting and planting flowers. Some projects and tasks are not available year-round and may be available only at specific parks.
The Adopt A Park program, started in December 2010, has been steadily growing with seven of 28 parks adopted to date. Each week, more community organizations and individuals call for details on the program.
The Recreation and Parks Department is proud welcome our partners in keeping Boynton's parks clean and thanks them for their commitment to the community, nature and play.
