  Available for Cohoes Businesses!

The Adopt-A-Planter Program is a community effort in generating street level vitality and greatly enhancing the ambience along the streets of Cohoes.  Any participating business receives a city provided planter, soil and flowers for their store front.

As a Planter Partner we ask you to follow these three simple steps to a beautiful Cohoes:

  • Plant the city provided plants in the planter
  • Keep the planter free of litter and debris
  • Water the plants (Five gallons of water, three times a week is the most successful watering schedule.)



Any individual, family, civic organization or business can adopt a park!

The main goal of the Adopt–a-Park program is to:

Keep our parks free of litter, debris and weeds
Have someone earmarked to report any damaged or broken equipment
To keep our community a beautiful place to live, play and enjoy!

As an Adopt-a-Park Partner, you can have fun with your park- decorate for seasonal holidays and plant perennials! Also, adopting a park is a great Service Learning activity for youth groups and students.
As a thank you for your commitment, Adopt-A-Park participants receive discounts at local flower shops for any items purchased for their adopted park.
