Adopt-A-Spot

Keep Tukwila Beautiful

Have you noticed an increase in litter around your local park or trail?  Due to budget and staffing reductions, Tukwila Parks and Recreation needs your help to keep open spaces clean and green.  Consider adopting a spot and commit to pitching in to pick up your favorite parks.  

Adopt-A-Spot is a year around partnership between Tukwila Parks and Recreation and residents, community groups, and businesses to help beautify Tukwila’s parks and trails. 

Join Us:  

Reach out to TukParks@TukwilaWA.gov or call  206-767-2315. Please leave your name, contact info, and the park or section of trail you are interested in adopting.  Staff will reach out and schedule time to discuss the program and answer questions.  

Tukwila Parks and Recreation will provide: 

  • Gloves and high visibility vests  
  • Trash pickers and bags  
  • Signage posted onsite thanking youyour business, or your group 

Volunteer commitment:

  • Safety during cleanups 
  • 4 clean-ups a year 
  • One-year (or longer) commitment   
  • Complete a short report after each cleanup  

Clean Ups and Work Parties: 

Once you have adopted a spot, participated in a quick two-minute training and received supplies, then clean up projects can begin.  Volunteers can set their own schedules for cleaning up, and it can be as casual as a weekly stroll through the park.  Collected litter can be left at the park near a trash can or in a designated area.   One or more person and small groups can adopt the same site – the more helping hands  the less litter we will see in Tukwila. The work is focused on litter clean up however depending on the volunteer light landscaping may be an option.
