Find & Connect with Park Volunteer Groups

When communities get involved, parks get better. Friends of City Parks is a network of over 100 volunteer park friends groups in every ward in Toronto. These groups animate and care for their local parks by organizing events and activities, advocating for improvements, and working with the City and other partners, such as Park People. The best way to get involved in city parks is through your local park friends group. Check out our Friends of City Park page to find your local park group, learn about upcoming events, and discover how you can create a park friends group in your local park.

If there isn’t a group in your local park, Park People provides tools, shares funding opportunities and reports that can help you start a new group.
