Your champion for

Saint Paul’s Neighborhood Parks

 

You Are needed to keep saint paul’s parks

great for all families

People are the pulse of the city – parks let them breathe. Parks are the city dweller’s backyard – an essential center for family and cultural life. The Coronavirus pandemic has certainly shown us all that parks are needed more than ever. Saint Paul is home to one of the country’s most celebrated park systems. With 179 parks and approximately 5000 acres of parkland, private/public partnership is essential to the continued success of our park system.

Your support will ensure that our parks and recreational facilities evolve and thrive as our city grows and diversifies.

Our Mission

The Saint Paul Parks Conservancy raises funds and partners with the Department of Parks and Recreation and the community to enhance and expand parks and recreational facilities that meet the changing needs of people in our diverse and growing city.

 

Our Values

Like you, we believe that exceptional parks and recreation facilities create safer, stronger and more welcoming neighborhoods.

The St Paul Parks Conservancy was founded in 2008 as the champion of Saint Paul’s award-winning park system. With your help, the Conservancy carries out St Paul’s vision of equitable access to active lifestyles, vibrant places, and a vital environment.

We are committed to ensuring that Saint Paul has a world class park system for generations to come. We have four main values:

Partnership

We work with the Department of Parks and Recreation, neighbors, and community non-profits to select project priorities, jointly fundraise, and directly improve our parks and recreation centers.

Opportunity

We believe that all neighborhoods deserve safe, welcoming, and attractive parks and recreation facilities.

Future-Focused

We seek to build on the legacy of our park system while inspiring innovations that respond to changing and future needs.

Stewardship

We are trusted stewards of donor gifts, ensuring that resources are used efficiently and transparently.

IT IS EASY FOR YOU TO SUPPORT THE PARKS YOU LOVE

Together with our donors and partners we are making exciting things happen for Saint Paul Parks. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay up-to-date on events and learn about ways to get involved with the Conservancy.

Today's Monday Park Museum feature is "Meditation" in Phalen Park by Lei Yixin from Changsha, China. Lei was later selected as the sculptor of the Martin Luther King, Jr Memorial in Washington, DC. This gorgeous, contemplative work, accented by the water and a nearby willow tree, has been a place for affirmation, reflection and support for Saint Paulites of Asian descent and their allies. #lovesaintpaulparks #saintpaulparkart ...
