Parks

With over 157 parks in Abbotsford, there are plenty to choose from. Volunteers may pick up litter, remove invasive plants and report on vandalism or maintenance problems. This opportunity is perfect for individuals, clubs and schools. It may be where you live, work or play – there is a street out there that could use your help. Volunteers adopt a length of roadway, and keep it free of litter and other garbage.
