Volunteer Deer Park

When you volunteer, intern, or adopt-a-greenspace with the Deer Park Parks and Recreation Department, you're involved in the stewardship and care of a public park and parks and recreation buildings. You have the opportunity to make a difference in your neighborhood, learn about maintaining a park system, and show your commitment to the City of Deer Park’s parks, recreation buildings and open spaces.


The Adopt-a-Spot program is an opportunity for organizations and citizens to take pride in their community and support the quality of life for Deer Park.

Art Park Players

There are many opportunities on-stage and off to lend your talents to Deer Park's own community theatre. Friends of the Art Park Players is a local non-profit that supports the Art Park Players.

Park Patrol

The object of the Deer Park Citizens on Park Patrol program is to provide more eyes and ears in the parks and neighborhood streets observing and reporting crime and/or suspicious activity. For more information on the Park Patrol Program contact Sheila Plovanich at 281-930-2118.

V.I.P.A.R. Program - Teen Volunteer Program

Since 1996, the Original Volunteers in Parks and Recreation (V.I.P.A.R. program) has been helping kids build a foundation of knowledge, a positive attitude, and skills needed to be responsible volunteers and future employees.  

V.I.P.A.R.'s will spend their time productively by assisting in recreational programs such as Camp Crabgrass, Movies and Concerts in the Park, Art Programs, and many more!

The V.I.P.A.R application process opens on April 14, 2024.

City of Deer Park's Municipal Volunteer Program (MVP)

The quality of life we enjoy in Deer Park is based on the effective and efficient delivery of city services. Citizen involvement is essential in providing the best services. It is the ultimate government by the people. By choosing to volunteer, you will have the opportunity to strengthen our great city by connecting with families, neighbors, and communities through service. Serving others is as easy as planting a garden, reading to a child, or picking up litter. You will make a difference in your community!   Visit Volunteer Opportunities for more information.
