The College Station Parks & Recreation Department and Brazos Valley Marine Corps League have rescued Parks Pals that need a home. Typical Parks Pals are sad balls of fur until someone adopts them, names them, loves them, and takes them on adventures. You know you’ve always wanted one. Here’s your chance. 

Parks Pals are available for adoption until we run out at the Stephen C. Beachy Central Park Office Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. If you call 979.764.3486 when you arrive, we’ll bring them out for curbside adoption. Each Parks Pal is free and is individually bagged with a certificate of adoption, 30-day adventure log, and coloring sheet.

They are perfect for kids, adults, or anyone young at heart. What kind of Parks Pal will you adopt?


Adopters are encouraged to keep their Parks Pal active and healthy by participating in at least 10 minutes of activity for 30 days. Those who return a completed 30-day adventure log by Nov. 30 will receive one free pool entry for the 2021 pool season. Logs will also be placed into a drawing for one free Family Swim Pass for up to five family members.

Here are some examples, but you probably have your own creative ideas:
• Go for a walk.
• Play a sport or a board game.
• Draw a picture or color.
• Explore the outdoors or play in a park.
• Ride a bike, skateboard, etc.
• Read a book.
• Work on a puzzle.
• Sing a song or play an instrument.
• Build a fort.
• Complete a chore or help a family member with one.

Submit your one of three ways:
1. ONLINE:  Form is closed
