The City of Coppell Parks and Recreation Department is proud to act as beneficiary to Eagle Scout Service Projects completed within the parks system. 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, parents and others may help, but the Scout must be the leader and primary point of contact throughout the project. All proposed project concepts must be preapproved by the Parks and Recreation Department prior to planning and proceeding with the Eagle Scout Service Project Workbook. Please note that the Parks and Recreation Department has limited resources and may not be able to accommodate all project proposals.
