Adopt a Park Program

The Seward Public Properties Division, in an effort to provide improved city park facilities, initiated an Adopt a Park sponsorship program. The purpose of the program is to upgrade and improve park playground equipment and facilities utilizing the resources of Seward’s civic groups. The civic group will develop pride of ownership in “their” park project while assisting the City of Seward to provide safer and better equipped facilities with the least amount of tax money being spent.
