The Adopt-a-Spot Program is part of Keep Lake Dallas Beautiful. It’s a program focused on both litter abatement and beautification. Families, along with service and civic organizations, have adopted parks and stretches of roadway throughout the city accepting the goal to keep those areas beautiful and free of litter.
