The Fort Madison Parks and Recreation Department's Adopt-A-Garden Program was established in order to provide the proper care and maintenance for the 31 flowerbeds located within Fort Madison's park system.
Any group, organization or individual that is willing to get their hands dirty and help maintain a flowerbed are encouraged to contact the Parks & Recreation Department. View available flowerbeds by clicking Adopt-A-Garden Flowerbeds.

The Parks & Recreation Department are excited to introduce the Sponsor-A-Garden Program! The City will partner with a local landscape business to complete the design work, planting and maintenance for a two-year period for the gardens that remain available following the Adopt-A-Garden program registration. Contributions to the Sponsor-A-Garden Program will help fund the development of self-sustaining flower beds that require minimal maintenance, yet still providing colorful and lively displays.
Open registration and sponsorship opportunities will be announced late spring.
Contact the Parks and Recreation office at 372-7700 x 201 for more information on the Adopt-A-Garden or Sponsor-A-Garden Programs.
