Our Liaison to Your Neighborhood
The Park People assists interested individuals in the creation of Friends Groups for their neighborhood parks. We provide direction, capacity building strategies and resources for these individuals and work as a liaison between their group and the Parks Department. Ultimately, these groups work to promote and enhance their parks through volunteer efforts, fund raising, and events. Over the years The Park People has assisted in the formation of over thirty groups.
Raise money for your Friends group at the gala!
Your group has an opportunity to raise funds at The Park People Gala that will be held on Saturday, November 12, 2022! Simply provide a silent auction item and host a table to promote your group. Your group can keep the majority of proceeds to use for projects at your park. Gala dinner tickets are not required to participate.
