Welcome! By volunteering with the City of Gainesville’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department, you become part of a dedicated team who know that your energy, time and skills enable us to further our mission to provide and maintain the natural, recreational and cultural facilities and programs that make Gainesville a great place to live, work and visit, and that help sustain the City economically, socially and environmentally.

Each year, our dedicated volunteers contribute hundreds of hours of their time to:
  • Coach youth sports
  • Provide most of the interpretive effort for Living History Saturday at Morningside Nature Center’s Living History Farm
  • Support day-to-day operations at Ironwood Golf Course
  • Clean up our natural areas and creeks
  • Assist with our truly SPECIAL events and projects
Without them, we couldn’t do what we do.
