Adoption Programs

Interested in adopting a park, stream, or street in the city? George Stilphen, the Keep Winston-Salem Beautiful Coordinator can help set your group up in one of these programs. Email George Stilphen or reach him at (336)771-5161. Contracts require a commitment to participate in regular cleanups for four years at a time. After the contract expires, you can choose to continue your contract at the same site, choose another site, or choose to stop participating in the program.

Did you recently complete a cleanup for one of the adoption programs? Fill out the Cleanup Report form online.

The Adopt-A-Park Program was established in 1989 by the Winston-Salem Recreation and Parks Department. It is now coordinated by Keep Winston-Salem Beautiful. The program provides the community a chance to become involved in the beautification and enhancement of our parks.

Participating in the Adopt-A-Park program gives individuals and groups a chance to contribute to the enhancement of their community parks and provide a much-desired service to our city. While the Recreation and Parks Department provides normal maintenance to parks, adopters would provide extra care and attention, which makes a park more beautiful.
