The ECCL established one of the most successful volunteer programs in Estero history. The ECCL Adopt a Highway Program is staffed by Estero residents. Volunteers from over 30 communities and businesses stepped up to help keep the four-mile stretch of Hwy 41 from Breckenridge Road north of Walmart to Coconut Road) free of litter. Since October 2020, the total rubbish collected has been an astounding 9,380 pounds (just under 5 tons).
Adopt Estero Community Park
We have another opportunity for greater Estero residents to contribute their time and talents. We encourage residents to join the Adopt Estero Community Park movement and volunteer to polish this gem we have in the heart of our community.
Located just off Corkscrew Road near Via Coconut Rd., Estero Community Park is a beautiful asset to all residents of Greater Estero. The Park covers over eighty acres without any interference from traffic. You can safely walk or bike around the Park, which is excellent for young children and families.
There is a popular 18 “hole” Frisbee golf course (turn up and play!). There are several bocce courts, football fields, places to play softball, horseshoe pits, ring toss lanes, and fishing, to name a few! More amenities include:
- Basketball Courts
- Bird Watching
- Charcoal Grills
- Dog Park
- Event Rentals
- Free Wi-Fi
- Jogging/Walking Path
