Volunteers make our parks beautiful and our programs happen.

By getting out into the community, they assist, lead and teach a variety of indoor and outdoor programs and help to maintain more than 4,100 acres of premier park land, open space and recreational venues.

Become a Volunteer

Spokane Parks and Recreation needs volunteers to keep our programs in operation, affordable, and our local parks clean, safe, and beautiful. We strive to give Spokane families opportunities to stay healthy by learning new skills, connecting with people, and providing recreational lands to enjoy during all four of our inland northwest seasons. Our volunteers must be at least 16 years old and must complete a waiver of liability and background check.
