Community Service Projects

​​​​​​​​​​​The City of Coppell Parks and Recreation Department is proud to act as beneficiary to all Eagle Scout Service Projects completed within the parks system. All Eagle Scouts inquiring about a service project are encouraged to visit all parks and trails systems and brainstorm a project to propose. (See list of Parks​​) One of the primary purposes of the Eagle Scout service project is to learn and enhance leadership skills. Per the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook (page 5), his parents and others may help, but the Scout must be the leader. If you wish to propose a service project to the City of Coppell, here is the process:
