Get Involved..............VOLUNTEER

Concord Parks and Recreation Department is looking for a few good volunteers. 

Have you always wanted to share your expertise in a special area or do you have a love for the outdoors?

We invite you to become a part of our Volunteer Program and make a difference in your community.  Coaches are a very valuable part of our athletic programs but are not the only areas where volunteers are needed.

We have volunteer opportunities available for families and individuals in our parks, greenways and recreation facilities.  Just ask and we will find an opportunity for you.

Have you noticed the safety green t-shirts walkers and runners are sporting in some of the City parks?  They are the result of a Park Watch program.

The Park Watch Program is similar to a typical Neighborhood Watch Program, with the idea of volunteers keeping their eyes open for suspicious activity in the parks and greenway trails.  If any suspicious activity is seen, the volunteers are instructed to call 911.  They are also instructed to stay involved and to not confront anyone before calling 911.

So far, the Park Watch Program has been implemented at James Dorton Park, Mickey McGee Park, Les Myers Park and McEachern Greenway.  Based on this pilot program, the department is now evaluating how to refine and expand to other locations throughout the City.
