Partnerships for Parks

Partnerships for Parks is an innovative joint program of City Parks Foundation & NYC Parks.

MISSION
Partnerships for Parks is the public-private program that supports and champions a growing network of leaders caring and advocating for neighborhood parks and green spaces. We equip people, organizations and government with the skills and tools they need to transform these spaces into dynamic community assets.

HOW WE DO IT
• We provide expert guidance on co-creating public space
• We connect people to active networks for social and civic activity
• We empower volunteers to become community leaders

VISION
PfP envisions parks as spaces where community members and decision makers work together to create their city.
