Adopt a Park / Adopt a Trail

The Town of Apex Adopt A Park / Trail (APAT) Program is designed to encourage the community to work hands-on to help keep Apex’s parks and trails clean and attractive.  

Citizens and citizen groups/agencies or organizations can contribute to the Town by "adopting" a section of a Town trail or park, and agreeing to improve it through litter pick-up, maintaining flower beds, painting, spreading playground mulch and other safety surfacing and other manual labor. The program also offers the opportunity for people to get more involved in their community in a way that promotes civic pride, appreciation and awareness.

Questions? Contact the program coordinator, Emily Schumacher by email or at (919) 249-3516.
