Adopt a Spot


Ardmore's Adopt-A-Spot allows businesses or individual citizens to be involved in caring for a designated area of our community - a neighborhood block, a park or a median. Click here to see photos.

The City of Ardmore and the Ardmore Beautification Council, jointly sponsor this program (see below.) The adopter will provide maintenance and litter pickup on a regular basis for their designated area. To become an adopter contact the Ardmore Beautification Council office - 223-2230.
