Adopt an Island

Adopt an Island Program

The City of Lowell’s Adopt an Island Program provides opportunities for companies, civic groups, institutions and individuals to adopt a traffic island or other public way green space and create attractive, welcoming “oases” throughout the City.

Guidelines provide information for two adoption options, in return for which an Adopt an Island sign recognizing the island’s adopter is installed by the City.

  • Under Option 1 adopters agree to invest “sweat equity” to maintain an island.
  • Under Option 2 adopters pay a nominal annual fee and the City’s Parks Department provides basic island maintenance.

To begin the process of becoming an Island Adopter check out the Guidelines and review application forms. Then, to find an island that suits your interest, check out the list of available spaces below:
