Did you know the City of Andover has an Adopt-A-Park program?  The program allows community groups or an individual to adopt a park of their choice to keep litter-free for a 2 year commitment.  The park clean-up takes place 2 times per year, once in the spring and again in the fall.  If you agree to a 2 year commitment, a sign will be placed in the park recognizing your group's contributions to the city's park system.  If you are interested in adopting a park or would like more information, feel free to contact Todd Haas, Parks Coordinator at 763-767-5131.
