The Adopt-A-Park Program is a collaborative effort between Whitefish residents and the City to improve and maintain our parks and paths. Any group willing to make the commitment can adopt a park or segment of bike path. Volunteers from a variety of groups are welcome to participate, including:
- Athletic Organizations
- Civic organizations
- Employee groups
- Neighborhood associations
- School groups
- Social clubs
Volunteers will work with the Parks and Recreation Department to create a customized plan for your group and your park or path. Tools, supplies, and technical expertise will be provided.
Connect Whitefish is a community-based volunteer group whose vision is to ensure active transportation and healthy lifestyles for the Whitefish community through year-round biking and walking opportunities. To achieve our vision, Connect Whitefish engages in advocacy, education, awareness and promotion of biking and walking in Whitefish.
Current projects include:
- Bike to School Day
- Bike to Work Week
- Connect Whitefish Week

Additional projects include bike path inventory for maintenance and wayfinding sign placement, research on a bike share program and other outreach opportunities.
