Our History

Since its formation on the 18th November, 2004 the People and Parks Foundation has inspired and facilitated a connection between people and parks.

Founded on the concept that a healthy environment, a healthy community and a healthy lifestyle are inextricably linked, and that there are limited resources in state government to further develop and deliver parks programs, the Foundation evolved to foster collaborative and innovative opportunities to connect people to parks.

Today the People and Parks Foundation is working to facilitate a variety of projects and programs - initiatives that aspire to enrich people’s lives through real interactions with nature. After 12 years, every activity and partnership fostered by us seeks to advance the link between the value of our parks and the health of our community.
