The City is looking for residents to volunteer as part of a new program called Volunteers in Parks (VIP). Park VIPs will help the City of Coral Springs ensure the safety and residents’ overall enjoyment of its parks. This program is an expansion of Park Moms, which focused their efforts specifically on children playgrounds.
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 throughout the parks. The first training session is planned for August, and will be available on a quarterly basis for new volunteers.
Volunteers can choose any park but they must be 18 or older to participate. Volunteers are not obligated to commit to a specific amount of time at the parks.
“We appreciate our volunteers for helping us find any safety hazards in our parks, this way we can take care of those issues right away,” Parks and Recreation Director Rick Engle said. “Volunteers will also be able to answer any general questions park users may have.”
To become a Parks VIP, call 954-345-2200 or stop by the Coral Springs Gymnasium at 2501 Coral Springs Drive.
