PROGRAMS THAT BENEFIT PARKS & RECREATIONAL AREAS
The first program is the Adopt-A-Park program. Individual volunteers or community groups can choose to perform a variety of tasks in one of our parks or recreation areas. Those who participate in this program work with Parks staff to adopt an area or park to provide some level of community service to this area.

Park and Facilities Master Plan
The Park and Facilities Master Plan provides a road map for providing high quality parks and recreation facilities for residents and visitors to the City of Napa. This plan includes a detailed examination of existing park sites and recreation facilities, providing the basis for an in-depth community discussion and analysis of the needs and priorities of park users. Community involvement in the planning process has built momentum and support for parks and recreation services as a key factor in Napa’s quality of life. The resulting recommendations lay out a path to a first class park and recreation system that realizes the personal, community, economic, and environmental benefits of parks and recreation. Recognizing that this path will not be straight or short, the plan provides tools to guide decision making and project implementation over the next fifteen years and beyond.
