Adopt - A - Park Program is a fun and educational program that provides individuals, local businesses, and community organizations the opportunity to take an active role in the beautification and maintenance of Glendora's Parks. Three ways to become involved in the program are: Improvement Sponsorship, Donation Sponsorship, and Project Sponsorship.
Improvement Sponsorship is designed for individuals to do maintenance activities such as (but not limited to):graffiti removal, litter removal, small scale gardening and landscaping, and painting. The Community Services Department will work with the adopting organization to identify the needs of the requested site and will provide necessary training. The participating organization will receive recognition.
A Donation Sponsorship is a great way to celebrate the life of a loved one or any special occasion. A donation sponsorship also provides the opportunity to recognize residents, business people, and professionals who have made an impact on the Glendora Community. Your monetary donations will purchase and install Park Amenities in accordance with design standards for Glendora's public spaces. A plaque will be affixed to or near the amenity if possible, with donator's name. Your donation will be recognized and featured in the Community Services Recreation and Activities Guide.
A Memorial Tree is a wonderful gift that will last a lifetime.
A memorial tree can be planted for many occasions: in memory of someone who has passed away; in honor of a dedicated service member; to celebrate a birthday, graduation, wedding, retirement, or other occasion. A tree will be planted in a City designated area and participants will be presented with an engraved plaque. (We do not put markers or plaques at the tree site). For more information or to request a form, please contact: Community Services Department (626) 852-4869.
A Project Sponsorship can make the difference in our neighborhoods. The ultimate goal is to improve our community and quality of life. Through a collaborative partnership with the Community Services Department; we can make the difference. Project Sponsorships are available year round. Your monetary gift will cover the cost of a large-scale project from groundbreaking to completion. When the project is complete, a sign with your name will be placed at your adopted project site. In addition, your organization will receive recognition, a plaque, and be featured in ALL of the Community Services marketing material. Projects may include (but not limited to):
- New playground equipment
- New athletic field lighting
- Renovation for an athletic field or dog park
- A new basketball, tennis, or volleyball court
