Park People started in 2011 when our Founder asked the question: “How can our Toronto parks better serve people and communities?” 

We're still dedicated to asking Toronto park people what they need and providing the connections and support to maintain a thriving Park Network program across Toronto. 

Community park groups in the Toronto Network organize volunteers to green and care for their local parks, advocate for park improvements, and host events such as tree plantings, nature walks, and festivals. We help them build their capacity, amplify their impact and increase awareness of the city parks movement.
