Help Make Ankeny Look Beautiful! 

The City of Ankeny is currently looking for individuals, families, church groups or students needing Silver Cord hours to help maintain flower gardens at many of the city’s parks and public buildings. This is a great volunteer opportunity to help beautify our community with minimal time commitment. Consider adopting a flowerbed; it's fun, rewarding and a great way to help enhance our city. 

Volunteers will...

  • Select the plants and flowers that will go in their assigned flowerbed
  • Plant flowers
  • Keep flowerbeds weed free 

Volunteers receive...

  • Name on small sign in flowerbed
  • Satisfaction from volunteering

Several existing and proposed flowerbed areas need to be adopted by volunteers. Ankeny Parks and Recreation will prepare the flowerbeds, provide plant and bed materials and water the flowers.
