The Park People works to preserve, enhance, and advocate for Denver's parks, recreation resources, open space and urban forest.

We pursue this mission by raising private funds for capital projects of various sizes, parks enhancements, and through our programs: Denver Digs Trees, Mile High Tree Champions, Community Forester and the Park Legacy programs.
