Fremont Hosts Kick-Off Ceremony for Adopt-A-Park Program
On Saturday May 15, 2004, the City of Fremont will host a ceremony beginning at 9:00 a.m., honoring local Rotary clubs that have "adopted" parks through the City's Adopt a Park program. The ceremony will be held at the Teen Center in Central Park, located at 39770 Sailway Drive, off of Paseo Padre Parkway. Mayor Gus Morrison will address club volunteers, friends and families gathered for this special occasion.
Each club has agreed to work on a variety of activities that will help keep the parks clean, safe, and attractive, such as picking up litter, planting and maintaining plants, and spreading wood chips in planter beds. Their efforts will supplement the work of the City's Parks Maintenance staff. The following parks have been adopted:
Centerville Community Park (Rotary Club of Fremont/Union City/Newark)
Los Cerritos Community Park (Rotary Club of Fremont)
Mission San Jose Community Park (Rotary Club of Mission San Jose)
Niles Community Park (Rotary Club of Niles)
Old Mission Community Park (Rotary Club of Fremont Sunrise)
Warm Springs Community Park (Rotary Club of Warm Springs)
