The Adopt-A-Cemetery program is a cooperative effort between the city, our residents, business owners, clubs, and organizations to keep our cemeteries clean and beautiful. Interested parties may adopt one or more cemeteries in Grand Prairie.

There are 15 cemeteries in Grand Prairie, many of which are home to historical markers from the Texas Historical Commission or the Grand Prairie Historical Commission. Keep Grand Prairie Beautiful assists in keeping some of these cemeteries beautiful through our Adopt-A-Cemetery Program. An Adopt-A-Cemetery event generally includes picking up litter and fallen branches.
