Lasdon Park is calling on volunteers to contribute hours in almost every department throughout the park. New volunteers will be interviewed and placed according to the park’s needs. As these needs change, other opportunities for volunteering can become available. Please review our list of opportunities to determine your areas of interest.

If you have questions about the volunteer program at the park, please  email Jessica Schuler, Park Manager, at jasc@westchestergov.com .
