Passionate Leadership for Parks

These farsighted leaders set goals, adopt policies, and evaluate the progress of our vibrant parks system. They recognize and celebrate the power of parks to create a healthier, more prosperous, resilient community, and to drive our potential to become a world-class region.

In response to an ongoing lack of adequate public funding, the Foundation formed a board of independent partners to engage in policy development and planning. Their leadership and support help to enhance the Foundation’s philanthropic capacity and strengthen its role as a focal point for critical public support.
