The Orono Park Donation Program was established to give individuals, families, and organizations the ability to enrich and grow our parks, trails and open spaces. Whether you want to celebrate a special occasion, remember a loved one, give back to the community or enhance a specific park, there is an opportunity to do so through one of the donation suggestions listed in this guide. A plaque or certificate commemorating your donation is an additional option available to you.


Adopt‐a‐Park is a volunteer program that welcomes the assistance of individuals, families, neighborhoods, and organizations in maintaining Orono’s parks, trails, and natural areas. Orono’s park system is spread across the entirety of the city, from the Crystal Bay neighborhood in eastern Orono to Saga Hill in the far west to Summit Beach on Long Lake. This expansive system relies on the dedication and good will of volunteers to serve as “caretakers” of these important amenities.
