Citizen Park Watch
Volunteers are always needed to help keep Prescott Valley parks as clean and safe as possible. Dedicated, caring citizens help the Town's parks staff and police officers tremendously as they work to upgrade and protect all of our parks. 2 programs are available.
Prescott Valley Park Rangers
With this program, individual citizens volunteer to patrol the town's parks at least 4 hours per month and report any maintenance issues or suspicious activities. Volunteers receive training from police officers and are provided with identifying shirts and hand-held radios.
Prescott Valley Park Rangers also assist with special events such as concerts, festivals, and the 4th of July celebration.
Monthly trainings are offered to the Prescott Valley Park Rangers on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. in the Conference Room 406, at the Civic Center.
Individuals, groups, or businesses can adopt a Prescott Valley park and contribute to the betterment of the community by making park areas cleaner, safer, and more attractive. These individuals serve as stewards of our parks, assuring monthly clean-up programs are maintained.
Reporting forms are provided to each group to assure easy notification to staff of the park needs. Signs are erected at parks to publicly recognize those making the commitment to the Adopt-a-Park program.
