Before there was R Park, there was a commercial gravel operation. Much work has been done since fall 2012 and the park is beginning to look less like a gravel pit and more like nature. Now that R Park is open, it’s time for the fun stuff — to host community gatherings, offer educational opportunities, ensure that the park remains clean and welcoming, and more.

We are seeking volunteers to help this community park in ways that are meaningful and rewarding. Help us install and/or repair signs. Perform basic trail maintenance once the snow has melted. Visit R Park on a regular basis to serve as an informal ambassador to assess how the park is doing, talk to visitors, and have fun. We’ll host volunteer days and need help making our biannual Solstice celebrations as fun as they’ve been in the past.

If you are interested in helping make and keep R Park great, please let us know!
