Raising funds for

Saint Paul’s Neighborhood Parks


Great Parks Need Great Supporters Like You

The City of 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

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

The Saint Paul Parks Conservancy was founded in 2008 to help carry out the vision of the Saint Paul Parks and Recreation plan calling for 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:


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.


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


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


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

We make it 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.
