Join or support a Friends Group

Are you looking to become a volunteer in your favorite park? Do you want to improve the health of a park near you? Did you want to meet more neighbors? Your park needs you! Because of budget cuts, staffing and facility maintenance are extremely limited in all parks. Friends Group volunteers work together to enhance a specific park’s beauty by holding clean-ups and Weed-Out® events. Fundraisers involving the local community are often organized to raise money to enhance or complete repairs within a park. Fun events, such as a summer concert or holiday activity, are sometimes held to bring more people into the park.


If you are wondering how you can become involved in making your park the best possible park, consider becoming a member of a Friends Group. Reach out to a friends group Park People Friends Directory. If you do not see a group listed for your favorite park, consider starting one. Contact Us the Park People for more information.
