Together We Can Close The Park Equity Gap

Parks are essential for public health, climate resilience, and strong connected communities. And yet, 100 million people in the U.S.—including 28 million kids—don’t have 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.
