The Partners in Parks program makes it possible for you as an individual, family, school or community group to contribute to our city's standing as a Community in Bloom.
Do you enjoy gardening, but lack the space to do it? Edmonton’s parks are full of plant life that needs tending. Become a Partner in Parks and share your green thumb with all Edmontonians!
By maintaining a flower bed, a cul-de-sac island, a bit of parkland or land along a roadway you can help make Edmonton an even more beautiful place to live.
Your efforts will:
- Boost pride in our city
- Bring beauty to your neighbourhood
- Give you personal satisfaction and enjoyment
- Help our operational teams maintain a high standard of care
