Park People supports and mobilizes people to help them activate the power of parks to improve quality of life in cities across Canada.

What’s Happening at Park People?

In October we’ll all be heading to the polls to pick our next local councillor and mayor.

Over 400 park groups across Canada are part of the Park People Network. Use our interactive map to find park events and volunteer opportunities in your city.
