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.

NEW!!  We're excited to partner with the Denver Forestry Office to bring you FREE TREES through the Be A Smart Ash campaign. Learn more about this damaging insect and apply for free trees TODAY. Trees are available for anyone with adequate space, you do not need to have an ash tree to apply...
