It is the mission of the Northwood Recreation Department to create recreational opportunities for growth and enhancement by developing an array of diverse, affordable programs and events that promote community service and environmental awareness while meeting the physical, mental, social, and psychological needs of our community.


Northwood Adopt-A-Spot Program

Northwood Parks & Recreation Department

Adopt-A-Spot Program gives citizens, non-profits, businesses, and other organizations the opportunity to show pride in our community.

Enhance the environment and beautify Northwood beaches, parks and roadsides!

This program offers groups a project that gives its members the satisfaction of making a contribution to their community. At the same time, it generates publicity for the group’s service activities.

Adopt-a-Spot volunteers will spruce up designated areas throughout the town by removing litter and debris, controlling weeds, planting trees and other plants, mulching, and identifying and eliminating hazards.

For more information on where to adopt and how to apply please contact Scott Blewitt, Recreation Director at
