V.I.P Park Moms

City encourages residents to Volunteers In Parks (V.I P.'s) in the V.I.P. Park Moms program

The City is looking for residents to volunteer as V.I.P. Park Moms and help the City of Coral Springs ensure the safety and overall enjoyment of its parks.

Saundra Tanne initiated the Park Moms program in 2007 with hopes of getting one volunteer mother, father or grandparent for each of the City's 49 parks. The City is encouraging residents to join this effort as many parks are still awaiting a Park Mom.

"We count on community volunteers to help us, not only to point out things in our parks that that need to be addressed, but to help us identify areas where we could save in the maintenance and upkeep costs of our facilities," Parks Superintendent Lou Goldstein said.

While at their favorite park, volunteers will scope the area for any apparent necessary repairs, graffiti or other issues. All volunteers will receive training on what to look for on playground equipment and toddler play areas.

To become a V. I. P. Park Mom, call 954-345-2200 or e-mail to lg@coralsprings.org
