Cornerstone Parks is Canada’s only national network dedicated to maximizing the impact and influence of Canada’s large urban parks.

Rooted in the belief there should be an ecologically and socially vibrant Cornerstone park within reach of every urban Canadian, Cornerstone Parks recognizes that our large parks make an enormous contribution to our cities by providing:

  • Vital green spaces for restoration, socializing and active living.
  • Dynamic programs that support vibrant communities.
  • Valuable ecosystems that promote biodiversity and connection to nature.
  • Essential climate resilience, helping our cities mitigate the impacts of climate change.

Through Cornerstone Parks, Park People is investing in the future of Canada’s large urban parks and spreading their influence to cities across Canada.
