||Arts & Gardens
With approximately 3,200 acres of parkland, 100+ miles of trails, and more than 170 parks, Saint Paul Parks staff simply can’t do it alone. Through simple maintenance-based activities, Park Stewards serve the community by helping Parks staff create a clean, safe and pleasant atmosphere at all locations within the Saint Paul parks system. Park Stewards are volunteer groups or individuals who assist in the upkeep and general beautification of Saint Paul's parks and trails. The Park Steward program is designed to enhance - not replace - regular maintenance of the parks.
- pick up litter and help maintain clean parks and natural areas
- Weed sidewalks, small gardens or other designated areas
- Report vandalism, illegal dumping, graffiti and other park hazards
- Engage in and assist in special park projects
- Other beautification tasks as needed and approved by staff
Why sign up to be a Park Steward?
Park Steward volunteers are essential in keeping our parkland clean and safe. Signing up to be a Park Steward allows us to better support your efforts by offering tools, trash bags, materials and advice. Saint Paul Parks and Recreation keeps track of Park Steward and other volunteer hours so we know how much work is actually going into maintaining our park system; and equally important, tracking your hours allows us to recognize you for all your hard work!
