About Park Champions
The new Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department Park Champions program empowers Redwood City community members to directly leverage the power of parks for the well-being of their neighbors, and to strengthen our overall sense of community. The program supports the formation and engagement of volunteer groups who are enlisted to play an active stewardship role for each park. Individuals, families and businesses that live and/or work in close proximity to a Redwood City park are all welcome to volunteer. In making our parks more vibrant, the Park Champions program benefits all of Redwood City by:
- Helping to keep Redwood City parks vibrant, safe and clean
- Enhancing community pride, neighbor relationships and a sense of belonging
- Increasing the value of our homes and commercial buildings
How do the Park Champions Help?
Park Champion volunteers work as individuals, as a group, and sometimes with Park staff to pick up trash, pick up dog poop, remove invasive species of plants (as directed by Park staff), restore native habitat, beautify Redwood City Parks and more! No experience is necessary. Training and tools will be provided. Wear clothes that can get dirty. Long pants and closed-toe shoes are required. Dress in layers for varying weather conditions and rain gear if needed.
