Join the Friends of Patterson     

  Park’s volunteer crew!



Tree Team: We meet Spring, Summer and Fall to weed and mulch young trees throughout the Park.

Pagoda Clean Up Team: Weed flower gardens, clean the Pagoda and edge walkways.

Pagoda Docent: Help staff the Pagoda mid-April through October on Sundays and during some special events. We need your help to keep the pagoda open and free to the public.

Boat Lake Team: Remove trash and cut overgrown vegetation around the walkway.

Garden Team: Plant, weed and water various gardens in the Park. If you are interested in gardening, let us know and we’ll let you know when and where to meet.

Youth/Recreation Volunteer: Help run free soccer clinics for kids year-round and tennis programs in the summer. These programs are very popular. To keep them free, we need help!

Playground Clean Team: Pick up trash in and around the playgrounds. This is a family-friendly volunteer event and a good volunteer opportunity to get kids involved.

Special Event Help: Additional events needing volunteer help include the Fishing Festival, Día del Niño, the Great Halloween Lantern Parade, Friends fundraisers & membership events. If you are interested in helping out during these events, let us know!
