Volunteer Opportunities


Several of our most dedicated volunteer groups have committed to adopting a park property. Park adoption can consist of a variety of responsibilities based on the skills, abilities, and availability of a group. Common activities are painting, weeding, mulching, landscaping and litter control. Participants receive recognition in the form of a park sign and one free rental of the park property each year. Applications can be obtained on our website or at the Canton Parks and Recreation office.

One Day Park Clean Up
With over 700 acres of land, Canton Parks is continually working to keep our parks clean. We would love your assistance in making an impact. Many groups volunteer to organize a park clean up. Parks will supply trash bags and disposable gloves for your volunteers on a mutually agreed upon date that will not interfere with park events. To arrange a park clean up please contact the office at 330-456-4521.

Share your talents – teach a class!
Do you have a special skill or hobby that you are willing to share? Instructors are always needed to teach new classes/programs for the Canton Parks and Recreation. Creativity is always encouraged and commitment is flexible. Examples include: photography, art, exercise classes, home decorating and sports.
