Kent Parks, Recreation & Community Services was established in 1956 and became a full-time department in 1959. In 1995, our Adopt-A-Park Program was created to encourage community partnerships in the care and maintenance of Kent 's parks, trails and open spaces. In 2006, over 1,000 volunteers of all ages and abilities contributed more than 3,000 hours working together on park projects - and they had a lot of fun doing it! Those numbers have increased in 2007 to over 1,700 volunteers and more than 5,000 volunteer hours. We are so grateful for this community support.

If you find the satisfaction of restoring something that has positive repercussions for everyone and the environment then this is the organization to help if you love to be outdoors.
