We Champion Access to Parks and Nature for Everyone in Minneapolis

Parks have the power to connect us, heal us, and make us whole. Our initiatives are informed by our commitment to equity and cultural inclusion, community health and wellbeing, connections to the natural world, climate resilience, and economic vitality. Today more than ever, our work throughout the city – and especially on the Upper Mississippi Riverfront – helps ensure that every resident has access to life-affirming parks and programming that bring our community together.

YOUR DONATION helps ensure the parks in our city remain accessible, equitable and serving everyone.
