Jesse Jones Park Volunteers

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.

Volunteer Opportunities:

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.
