Oroville's 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 (Adopt-A-Park) 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.
Volunteers identify safety hazards and freely communicate other issues associated with their designated park. The city provides the necessary equipment for the cleanups and a sign at the chosen site recognizing the volunteer group. The program is suitable for community groups, businesses, churches, scouts, students, individual citizens, etc.

SIMILKAMEEN SPUR TRAIL WILL BE CLOSED BEGINNING APRIL 19 The Similkameen Spur Trail will be closed beginning April 19 for the majority of 2021, with limited closures in 2022. The closure is due to Okanogan PUD constructing required dam safety repairs and maintenance work on Enloe Dam. There will be heavy equipment use and daily vehicular traffic on the Spur Trail, which is too dangerous to allow public access to occur at that time. The closure will be just before the bridge crossing the Similkameen River. The trail will be restored to its current condition after construction.
