Group and One-time Volunteer Opportunities

Are you interested in donating your time and talents to Zionsville Parks but don’t want to make a long-term commitment?  The park department offers group and one-time volunteer community service opportunities for those seeking to give back to the community.  Projects vary by season and need. One-time volunteers do not need to fill out an application, but you will be required to complete a waiver form before participating.

Community Service Days

The Zionsville Parks and Recreation Department provides opportunities for community members aged 16 years and older. If a volunteer is under the age of 16, they must be accompanied by an adult parent or guardian. These events generally last 2-3 hours and are the perfect opportunity to spend some time giving back or fulfilling a service hour requirement.
