Prioritizing the health and wellbeing of youth participants, the Douglas-Coffee County Parks and Recreation Department (DCCPRD) has made the decision to cancel the fall football, soccer, and cheerleading season.  The continued effects of the Coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19 safety guidelines contributed to this cautious decision to protect the health and well-being of participants, parents, officials, coaches, and staff.

"Canceling the fall season was certainly a difficult decision to be made," said Stevie Young, Director of DCCPRD. However, health and safety are our highest priorities, and this decision aligns with those priorities."

Adopt-A-Park Program

Boys and Girls Club of Coffee County help clean up Wheeler Park

The City of Douglas and Douglas Coffee County Parks and Recreation  (DCCPRD) are looking for volunteers to help keep our city parks clean. The "Adopt-A-Park" program has been in effect for several years. There are approximately 12 parks located in the city that are available for adoption.

The purpose of the program is to assist with upkeep of city parks for all who visit. Any individual or organization that chooses to participate with the program will make a commitment to maintain a park for a period of one year with the option to renew each year providing DCCPRD, nor, the volunteer cancels the agreement in writing. Responsibilities will include monitoring the park, maintaining plants, monitor trees for disease, limbs or hanging branches, edging sidewalks and keeping sidewalks clear of debris and weeds, regular litter pickup, keeping park signs clean and visible, and removing or reporting graffiti.
