A program of the City of Norfolk, Adopt-A-Spot is a volunteer service activity for individuals, families, organizations, and groups. We’ve adopted two spots in Norfolk and organize clean-ups for them four times a year. Our original spot is in Ghent at the intersection of Colonial Avenue & Washington Park. We clean the greenway and park of trash.
The other spot is actually a park, Barraud Park. For the past four years, Barraud Park was part of our big group clean projects. A few years ago, we partnered with Hope House Foundation to clean up for Keep Norfolk Beautiful Day. One of the gentleman supported by Hope House, Joe, fell in love with the clean-up efforts and we made a point to clean that park every time we organized a large group clean event. Joe passed away about two years ago and we officially adopted the park with Hope House Foundation in memory of him.
