Volunteers fill a number of roles at Jones Park, from giving children a fun learning experience about nature or Texas history to sharing their talents behind the scenes. If you enjoy the outdoors, like working with people, or have a special skill, consider becoming a Jesse Jones Park Volunteer (JJPV)! Training is provided as needed and no previous experience is necessary.
Fall is synonymous with festivals, and Jones Park is in need of dozens of volunteers to deliver three great events to our community: Tricks & Treats Among the Trees, Pioneer Day, and An Old-Fashioned Christmas. Whether you like nature, history, or working with people, we have a volunteer opportunity for you! No previous experience is necessary.
