The 606 is Chicago’s newest place to exercise, commute, and connect. And while the trail opened last year, there's still lots to do! From the beginning, the community envisioned The 606 as a living work of art with major art works and performances spanning the three mile park. We need to raise $25,000 by December 31 to keep on pace to reach our year-end goal. Now's your chance to add your name to The 606 and support a living work of art. Find out how.
Scattered across 30 miles of river bottom from Gunnison to Gothic, Trampe Ranch defines the character and sense of place of the valley—sustaining Western traditions while supporting our outdoor economy and enhancing recreational opportunities. Yet, too often family ranches like these are lost to development. Help us forever protect the productivity, beauty, and heritage of the Gunnison Valley. Donate now.
In the heart of Montbello sits a forlorn vacant lot. Rather than remain an unsafe eyesore, the site has the potential to be a true community asset.

Help protect and nurture two of our greatest assets - our children and our environment - and create a healthier and more vibrant community for all. Donate today.
The Trust for Public Land and Maunalua Fishpond Heritage Center are working to purchase and forever protect Kanewai Spring in Kuli‘ou‘ou, one of Honolulu’s last natural springs to still provide fresh, clean water to the shore. Once overgrown, dark, and murky the spring and the surrounding land are now brimming with life thanks to five years of hard work by the center and hundreds of volunteers. But now, the site is for sale and community access to this site is in jeopardy. Please kokua by making a gift today.
The Trust for Public Land and the City of Bozeman are spearheading the effort to build the Story Mill Community Park. Local groups and residents have helped create a proposed design. City commissioners have voiced unanimous support. And a voter-passed bond measure will dedicate significant funds to the project.
Thanks to a generous and committed donor, we now have the opportunity to secure a $1 million grant, if we can raise the needed matching funds. Help us seize this opportunity to create a world-class park for Bozeman. Donate today.
Our Parks for People program in Newark has a long history of working with community partners to develop safe, inviting, learning-rich schoolyards throughout Newark. We now have an opportunity to bring our community-driven design and development process to the Ironbound neighborhood in the city's East Ward.

In central Queens, The Trust for Public Land and Friends of the QueensWay are working to transform an abandoned stretch of rail line into a vibrant park-and-trail system. The QueensWay's 3.5 miles of bike paths and walkways will provide opportunities for safe alternative commuting and connect communities with new playgrounds, recreation areas, and Forest Park. The conceptual plan includes beautiful, practical designs for access parks, gardens, play areas, and bike paths. The QueensWay will bring much-needed public green space to a densely-populated area, serving approximately 320,000 residents living within one mile of it. Help us build New York City's next great park!
Like many schoolyards in Philadelphia, the asphalt lot at the Edwin M. Stanton School isn’t a fun place to play - no trees, no grass, not even a playground! We think kids deserve better. That’s why The Trust for Public Land, Stanton Community Partners and other neighbors are working together to transform this space into a healthy, animated green schoolyard where kids can play, learn and thrive. We worked with the students to design a new schoolyard that meets their needs for green spaces, play equipment, exercise and outdoor learning. But to make their vision a reality, we need your help. Help us create a green schoolyard! Donate today.
For decades, residents and visitors to Jackson, Wyoming, enjoyed these natural mineral soaking pools on the banks of the Snake River for birthday parties, picnics, and camping trips. But in the late 1990s, the facility closed and the community lost access to one its most-loved recreation areas. Now, the Town of Jackson, designers, park planners, and community groups are working to protect the property from development and transform 100 acres along the Snake River into a unique park. Help us create the park!
