National Network

Strengthening Work in City Parks Across Canada

Park groups across the country are doing incredible work in their city parks. Park People believes that with a strong network of peers and partners to support them, they can accomplish even more. That’s why we are creating a national network that will:

Provide Resources

Provide online resources and training park groups need to succeed

Strengthen Relationships

Build connections to ensure great park ideas spread across the country

Host Events

Create events that shine a light on what’s happening in Canadian city parks. Starting with our National Conference in March, 2017.


Speak up for parks

Build a strong, collective national voice in support of Canada’s city parks

Are you part of a community group working in Canadian city parks? Do you work for a city or non-profit that supports community engagement in city parks?

We’d love to hear from you! Tell us what you would like to see from a national  network and how we can help realize your vision for your city parks:
