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.

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.
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:
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.
IT IS EASY FOR YOU TO SUPPORT THE PARKS YOU LOVE
