Adopt-A-Trail

The City of Wichita Falls Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) and Parks and Recreation oversee the Adopt-A-Trail Program. This program encourages families, neighborhoods, community or civic groups, businesses, youth groups, schools, and individuals to get involved in the beautification of the Circle Trail by allowing partners to adopt sections of the trail. These civic partnerships allow citizens to take pride in their community and help keep the costs of litter collection under control.


WFFFA sign

The Adopt-A-Trail program is a two-year commitment. The agreement calls for four annual cleanups, and it asks trail partners to provide cleanup reports to the city after each event.  

Circle Trail assignments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. Maintenance will include litter pick up and debris removal. The City of Wichita Falls Parks and Recreation Department will continue to provide regular maintenance to each adopted area.

For more information, contact the City of Wichita Falls Environmental Coordinator by phone at (940) 761-7670 or by email at drew.begley@wichitafallstx.gov.

As a special thank you, the City of Wichita Falls will acknowledge a group’s commitment and dedication with a sign along the adopted trail that displays the group’s name.  The sign will not be put up until one cleanup event is held.
