Guymon's City Parks are in need of help from community volunteers.
With the City 12 parks and "green" spots in town, more than 65 acres of land being taken care of by only the three city employees budgeted for.
The growing challenge has prompted Guymon's City Council to revise the Adopt-A-Park Program. Originally established in 2002, the program revision was approved in November of 2010 to allow the community contribute to the effort, through a hands-on approach.

HOOKER, Okla. â€“ For Superman there is kryptonite. For the Texhoma Red Devils there is Alex Sanchez.
Six weeks after sinking the game-winning free throws to beat Texhoma, Hooker's junior guard drove the nail in once again, swishing a fall-back jumper just before the buzzer to lift the Bulldogs to a 46-44 victory at home Tuesday.
HOOKER, Okla. â€“ Even in a close game against a bitter rival, in a foreign gym, the Texhoma Lady Devils couldn't be rattled.
The Lady Devils went 6-for-6 from the free throw line in the final 30 seconds to hold of the Hooker Lady Dogs, 37-31 on Tuesday.
"I was proud of them. That's something that we have to have going into the playoffs," Texhoma coach Davis Forsythe said. "Teams that win in the playoffs have to be able to get up there, ignore the crowd and sink free throws."
