Be a Volunteer in Kirkwood Parks!

Volunteer efforts go a long way in the maintenance and enrichment of Kirkwood Parks. Kirkwood Parks Assistance Corps (KPAC) volunteers participate in a wide variety of activities. By helping with tasks such as gardening, invasive bush honeysuckle removal or general park clean up, volunteers make a significant impact in our parks.

The Kirkwood Parks Department needs volunteers on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Here is a chance to volunteer as an individual or with your family and friends. Volunteer for a one-day event or one day a week at your favorite park. Groups and individuals may also adopt-a-park of their choice to provide general care and maintenance.

Volunteers of all ages have something to offer and are welcome at any of the volunteer events or as weekday volunteers.
