Park People is an independent charity that builds stronger communities by animating and improving parks, placing them at the heart of life in the city.

As Canada’s first citywide park organization, we’re leading a renaissance for our parks, built around a simple principle: when communities get involved, parks get better.

We support more than 100 community park groups, bringing them together with city staff, funders, businesses, and other partners to host events, plant more trees and gardens, build new park infrastructure, steward volunteers, and transform parks into dynamic community hubs.

We offer crucial training and mentorship, and share learnings through our Parks Summit and Park Talks. We get the word out on what’s new in parks through a network of over 5000 park enthusiasts, and through research and reports profiling challenges and opportunities.

We don’t stop there, though. We drive change through transformative developments such as the Green Line linear park, and our Sparking Change program to turn under-used green space into community hubs for low-income neighbourhoods.

Our work has made us a leading authority on Toronto parks, and Canada’s leading city parks transformation organization.
