Take Park in Parks

There are many ways to get involved in the movement for better parks in Toronto, from joining a park friends group, to attending a fun park event, to staying up to date on the latest park news.


Friends of City Parks

The best way to get involved in city parks is through your local park friends group. Check out our Friends of City Park page to find your local park group, learn about upcoming events, and discover how you can create your own park friends group in your local park.


Volunteer for Parks

Throughout the year, volunteers support Park People’s mission at events, with select research, administration and office tasks, with videography and photography work, supporting events like clean-ups and tree plantings, and various other ways to support Toronto’s parks. If you’d like to join our volunteer community, please subscribe to our mailing list, and indicate ‘Sign me up for volunteer opportunities in Toronto parks.’

Park People Newsletter

Stay up to date on the latest park news by signing up for our monthly newsletter. It’s the best way to stay informed about what’s happening at Park People, but also with parks across the city. You’ll hear first about upcoming events, inspiring stories, news from the City, and more. Aside from our general newsletter, Park People offers our Parks Insider newsletter, which contains more specific information about funding and grant applications, workshops and resources, and volunteer opportunities.
