Park or Public Property Vandalism

Volunteer Programs

Janesville significantly benefits from financial, material, and labor contributions from local businesses, service clubs, and community groups. Such donations help the Park Division extend services beyond the limits of City funding. Many significant improvements were made within the park system as a result of community assistance.
