Adopt-A-Park

Bowden Park has kindly been adopted by the Lister and Carlson families. The Lister's and Carlson's jumped on board with our Adopt-A-Park Program, to give them an opportunity to socialize with each other while doing some good for their community. We are very grateful for their participation, and look forward to working with them to keep Bowden Park in tip top shape.

The Adopt-A-Park program gives churches, civic organizations, local businesses, and other community groups the opportunity to adopt their neighborhood park. Adopting groups will commit to maintaining their park for a renewable one-year term, helping with things such as eradicating graffiti, picking up litter, filling mutt-mitt dispensers, painting site amenities, raking leaves, and mulching trees and planting beds. In exchange, the Department recognizes the group as the adopting agency via our website and signage at the park.
