Become a Youth Ambassador!

Rail Park Youth Ambassadors are young people who care for the Rail Park and want to show their park pride! They represent the Rail Park and help to keep the park clean, green, and fun for everyone in the following ways:

  • Greeting other Rail Park visitors
  • Carrying out and throwing away any trash they create while visiting the Rail Park
  • Walking on the pathways and not in the planting beds, and making sure that their dogs do the same
  • Using their knowledge about the Rail Park to teach others about the park’s plants, animals, history, and art
  • Showing their park pride by wearing their Rail Park gear
