Tree & Bench Dedication

The Ypsilanti Township Parks and Recreation System consists of thirty parks and recreation facilities totaling over 890 acres. Each year, the parks department works hard maintaining and renovating existing facilities and adding new landscaping and park equipment to the system. The need for community involvement throughout our park system is greater than ever. Here is a wonderful opportunity for you to get involved in your community in a very meaningful way. What can you, your group, your social organization, business/company, neighborhood watch group do?

• Adopt a portion of a roadside or non-motorized pathway
• Adopt a park by picking up trash and being eyes and ears
• Do a service project in a park
