Benefits of Volunteers

The Valparaiso Parks Department thrives on volunteers giving of their time and desiring to help our programs, sports, and individual park locations. The countless hours of volunteer service and positive attitudes are what enable us to provide great programs to the public. It’s volunteer dedication and loyalty that allows the parks to grow while maintaining a quality of service that the people of Valparaiso deserve and have come to expect.
