Together We Can Close The Park Equity Gap

Parks are essential for public health, climate resilience, and strong connected communities. Yet, in the U.S., about 1 in 3 people, including 28 million children, don’t have access to a park within a 10-minute walk of home. We’re working to change that, and we need your support. Help us connect everyone to the outdoors.
