Become a Park Volunteer
Recycling SaturdayRecycling at Discovery Green takes place every Saturday from 10am to 2pm. Recycling volunteers help patrons take items out of their cars so they don’t have to park to recycle. Volunteers will also help ensure that the items are put into the correct recycling bins. Volunteers choose between two shifts: 11am - 12:30pm or 12:30pm - 2pm.
Signature EventsThere are a variety of Signature Events at the park. They are generally held on Fridays and Saturdays in the Spring and Fall. Each one is different and unique, so volunteer duties will vary.
Field of Light InstallationTen volunteers are needed per shift to help install Field of Light.
Frostival! Ice rink opening eventTen or more volunteers are needed to help with various games and to assist in other ways as necessary.
General Volunteer InformationVolunteers should arrive about 10-15 minutes before their shift to allow time to go into the office, meet the Discovery Green volunteer leader, get a Volunteer T-shirt and instructions. Parking is $1.50 per hour at the meters around the park Monday through Saturday (and free after 6 p.m.). Parking lots are about $5.00 and up. Always read the posted signs, which supersede any instruction from park staff.
