The City of Platteville has five parks remaining available for adoption through its Adopt-a-Park program.
Parks in need of being adopted are Highland Park, 465 Stevens St.; the Family Aquatic Center, 1155 N. Fourth St.; the Skate Park, 605 E. Main St.; Swiss Valley Park (the dog park), 945 Valley Road; and Westview Park, 1085 Camp St.
The Adopt-a-Park program was created to give citizens an opportunity to volunteer in our city’s parks. Their time spent doing upkeep, cleaning, maintenance, beautification, and preservation of our parks helps to provide a safer, more beautiful park experience for the entire community.
