Volunteers help out at the Westfield Dog Bark

Yes, volunteers are always needed for parks and recreation since competing needs of tax dollars cause governments (that is us) to cut back on "funding for fun."

Transportation Survey

You say, what does transportation have to do with Recreation?  Well lots if you include:

"Projects that preserve existing regional assets such as parks, historic areas and farms. These projects include elements to protect open spaces, parks, agricultural land and provide access to historic and cultural resources. An example would be the construction of an off road bicycle path along an abandoned railroad corridor or utility right of way." (PVPC)
