Adopt-A-Park or Trail

Help us keep our Parks and Trails clean and safe for the Kentwood community.  This is an opportunity for local businesses, organizations, families and friends to support the mission of the Parks and Recreation Department by improving the overall quality of life for all of Kentwood. 

We love it when members of our community help keep our parks and trails clean. We'd like to thank Al (pictured right) for adopting a portion of the East West Trail.

If you'd like to get involved, contact Denise Dawson, (616)656-5323 or dawsond@ci.kentwood.mi.us.

Trail Patrol

Do you love the outdoors, walking, running, biking or spending time on our trail system?  Give back to your community and have a blast while being a part of our Trail Patrol Program.  Trail Patrol volunteers spend time on our trails and report needs for maintenance and are ambassadors for the City of Kentwood.  Have fun while helping us keep our trails in the best condition possible! Contact Denise Dawson, (616)656-5323 or dawsond@ci.kentwood.mi.us.
