Adopt-A-Park Program

The goal of the Adopt-A-Park Program is to provide interested individuals, groups, or organizations with a public service opportunity that allows volunteers to help maintain the City of Isanti Park System. The program encourages and promotes community involvement, but also enables the City to further beautify and improve park areas. The Adopt-A-Park Program duties and responsibilities supplement the work of City staff; and by working together we hope to help area residents, businesses, and service organizations to become better connected to the community in which they live, work, and recreate. Click here to learn more.
