Get Involved!

Are you looking to become more involved in your community?  At Maplewood Parks and Recreation, we strive to offer the best recreation activities for our youth and their families.  We believe this begins with creating strong families and communities through youth development, recreational programming, and community service.   Please consider taking a look at the various involvement opportunities that we have to offer.   Thank you in advance for your support.
Adopt - A - Park
The goal of the Adopt-A-Park Program is to provide an opportunity for interested parties to take part in maintaining our park system. By providing this opportunity it not only encourages and promotes community involvement but also allows us to beautify
This opportunity is available to any individual, family, resident, group organization, or business who is eager to help beautify our parks.  The Adopt-A-Park commitment period is between April 1 – October 31.  Applications are accepted throughout the year and require a minimum of once a month dedication.  After a 60 probationary period, a recognition sign will be displayed at the park of choice.  For more information email recreation@maplewoodMN.gov or call 651.249.2125.

Adult Athletic Sign Sponsorship
The adult athletic sign sponsorship is a unique marketing opportunity for local businesses.  Maplewood Parks & Recreation has started an outfield sign program at Veteran’s Memorial Park (formerly Goodrich).  This is an opportunity to purchase one, two, or three 4’ x 8’ outfield signs that are visible from the softball fields as well as North St. Paul Road.  Veteran’s Memorials houses the entire adult softball program (summer, fall and late fall leagues) and hosts multiple youth tournaments throughout the season.  The funds from these sponsorships will go directly to maintaining and upgrading this facility keeping the fields suitable for the high level of play they receive.  For more information email recreation@maplewoodMN.gov or call 651.249.2121.

Round Up For Recreation
Help Maplewood Youth Participate in Maplewood Recreation!
Maplewood Parks & Recreation serves approximately 6,000 youth through our classes, programs, and youth sports leagues.  How can you help?  Say YES! and we will round up your admission fee at the Maplewood Community Center to the next dollar.  The proceeds will go directly to the Maplewood youth Scholarship Fund to support families who would otherwise be unable to participate in our youth classes and programs.  For more information email recreation@maplewoodMN.gov or call 651.249.2125.

Youth Scholarship Fund
The Youth Scholarship Fund serves Maplewood residents (under 18 years) who demonstrate a financial need and may not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in recreation programs.  Qualifying families are asked to pay 1/3 of the program fee and the scholarship fund covers the remaining 2/3 of the fee.  Sponsorship of our scholarship program is a great way to show your support for Maplewood Parks & Recreation and the community.  Your contribution will make a huge difference in the lives of our participants and enable them to build a positive and healthy lifestyle through recreational programming.  Please consider making a donation to the scholarship program and making "wellness, arts, and fun for everyone" a reality for our Maplewood youth.  For more information email recreation@maplewoodMN.gov or call 651.249.2120
