Beautiful parks require a little dirty work!
Ashland Parks and Recreation is the caretaker of over 27 parks, trails, open spaces, and recreational facilities in and around the City of Ashland.
Because we have a “no synthetic products in parks” policy we ask individuals within the Ashland community—including neighborhood groups or businesses—to commit to helping with park maintenance by adopting parks, natural areas, and ball fields.
Get involved, show community pride, and have fun—all at the same time! It’s easy to do… you or your group commits to just four cleanups per year and we provide training, tools, and recognition of your hard work.
