Our Projects

We are committed to finding projects that make our community a better place. Our Adopt A Park program is a public service program that encourages community members to beautify and maintain city parks. Learn more 


TOI has consistently held meetings and extra work sessions to ensure that we are on the right track for making that happen. We are involved with the City of Oroville, the Oroville WA Chamber of Commerce, Oroville Streetscape, the PNW Trail Association and more. Learn more about our past projects.

Deep bay park Oroville

The Adopt-a-Park program is a public service program to beautify our city parks and to create and promote neighborhood and community involvement. The AAP program encourages volunteers, with the assistance of the City of Oroville and The Oroville Initiative (TOI), to adopt a park in Oroville for regular maintenance and cleanups. By adopting a park, the activities done in the park need to benefit the majority of the park users.

Program Guidelines

Adopt-a-Park is open to community groups, civic groups, churches and individual citizens who may request park sites on a first-come, first-served basis. The program is managed by The Oroville Initiative. However, the City of Oroville has final approval and signs the agreement with participating groups or individuals. The City provides all necessary trash bags and picks up full bags.

Participants under the age of 18 must have responsible adult supervision. Groups should designate a supervisor to organize the outings, inform (TOI and/or City of Oroville) of planned litter pick-ups, and arrange for distribution of trash bags and final pick-up.

It is suggested that litter is picked up once a month during May through October. Flower tending is through May to October and it is suggested that weeding and watering occurs weekly
