Volunteer at Parks
Looking for ways to get involved and volunteer? Miami-Dade Parks Leadership and Community Engagement (PLACE) Program provides a variety of service opportunities for individuals, community/civic groups, schools and corporate entities who are interested in volunteering their time and donating resources to benefit our park system. Through its diverse vehicles of engagement, the PLACE Program inspires individuals to become future park champions. Below you can find various ways to get involved and volunteer at Miami-Dade Parks.
Park Site Volunteers
This is the perfect opportunity for high school students, college service learning students, court mandated volunteers and other individuals looking to fulfill community service requirements. See below for the various park sites that volunteers help support.
Adopt-A-Park Group Volunteers
Want to get a group of friends, family, or work colleagues together for a fun volunteer project? Miami-Dade Parks is the perfect PLACE for your group!
This service option matches groups interested in donating resources, volunteer labor, in-kind materials and monetary contributions, with park enhancement projects, cleanups and beautification needs. We also offer groups the opportunity to “adopt” specific park sites and natural areas. Ready to get your group together and make a difference? Complete the Group Volunteering Inquiry form.
Park Service Days
These “one-day” community wide service events take place throughout the year and are perfect for individuals who are looking to volunteer for a few hours at Miami-Dade Parks. Park Service Day events are hosted at various park sites. Event participants are provided with great family-friendly opportunities to work on park beautification tasks, all while building community.
