About Park People

Park People’s helps people activate the power of parks in cities across Canada. We do this in several ways:

Z

Connect

We link partners with a shared interest in city parks such as community park groups, city staff, funders, businesses, and other partners working to transform city parks

Z

Support

We build the capacity of Community Park Groups across Canada, providing them with training and mentorship to build their capacity to make a difference in Canada’s city parks

Z

Cultivate

We build interest in the community park group movement by profiling all the latest in park news to our network of over 10,000 park enthusiasts, and through research and reports profiling challenges and opportunities.

Z

Innovate

We highlight creative approaches to parks as tools for city building through projects such as the Green Line, programs like Sparking Change that highlight what’s possible for our city parks

Z

Research

We produce research and regularly publish content that highlights best practices and insights to support thriving city parks.
