Welcome to Bentonville Parks & Recreation! We are excited about your interest in the Adopt-A-Trail and Adopt-A-Park programs and hope you enjoy being involved in the community.

 

 

Purpose

 

Orchards Park

The programs offer an opportunity for people and organizations to get involved in their community in an effort to promote civic pride, appreciation and awareness. It is a partnership between the City and the community to keep the trail network and park system safe, free of trash, tree limbs and other debris, aesthetically pleasing and in the best condition possible. Participants are asked to volunteer a minimum of three times per year. The first volunteer work session must occur within the first six months of trail or park adoption, followed by two additional volunteer work sessions before the end of the year. Following the first volunteer work session, the City will install recognition signage along the adopted trail or in the adopted park.
