About the Program

The Moline Adopt-a-Park program was designed to improve and enhance Moline parks through community involvement and citizen partnerships. The program allows participants to take an active role in the beautification of our community and help support Moline's park system. Adopt-a-Park will not be used in place of the department's regular maintenance of the parks. Larger parks the adoption areas will be divided into smaller areas.

More information can be found at Keep Moline Beautiful or by contacting Park Operations Manager, Greg Johnson at 309.524.2410. To download the Adopt-a-Park Program packet please click here.
