“I’m very thankful for the contribution Pack 152 is making to this park and, therefore, to the community,” said Oakley Councilmember Pat Anderson. “They have the ability to become a beacon to the Adopt-A-Park program across the city and an example of hands-on citizenry at its finest, giving freely and with all you have to make your community a better place for everyone.”
The Oakley Adopt-A-Park program allows volunteers to adopt a park, trail or landscape area. Individuals or groups assist in cleaning, littler pickup, weeding, planting and other maintenance activities, and are asked to make a one-year commitment, though the frequency can be as seldom as quarterly.
“Their efforts reduce maintenance costs to the city and give the volunteers a greater sense of pride in their community,” said Oakley City Manager Bryan Montgomery.
Residents, businesses, service clubs, churches, school clubs and other groups are encouraged to participate in the Adopt-A-Park Program. For more information, call the Oakley Parks Division at 925-625-7037.
