City Parks Volunteers



For more information and to sign-up, please contact Anita Albrecht - 541.270.4967

The Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Newport is undertaking an exciting new initiative that will help direct resources to maintaining our many city-owned parks and trails in Newport, and I’m hoping you’ll be a part of it.

Under the leadership of Newport Parks and Recreation staff, our department will be organizing volunteer beautification days in our city parks. These events will take advantage of the overwhelmingly generous spirit of volunteerism that pervades in our city. While goals and activities will vary from park to park, generally we will conduct landscaping activities like pulling weeds and trimming bushes, clean play equipment, remove trash and debris, plant trees and native plants and undertake any other cleanup and beautification needed in each location.

If you do plan to join us, please:

  • Wear closed-toe shoes and work clothes
  • Bring gloves and hand tools like clippers and trowels – no power tools, please! We will also provide tools.
  • Bring sunscreen, a hat if you want it, water … and your can-do attitude!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

See you in our parks!
