Looking for a new and exciting way to give back to your community? Become a Friend of Waller Mill Park and discover how fun volunteering can be!
Friends of the Park is a volunteer program that is meant to support the work of park staff and provide volunteers with the opportunity to use their skills while contributing to the park as well as the community.
Volunteers will be matched to a position that is of interest to them and is of benefit to the overall enhancement of the park. The success of the program will depend upon the dedication of our volunteers.
