Partnerships for Parks: Generating Sustainability for NYC’s Vast Network of Community Park Leaders


Partnerships for Parks just celebrated its 25th year as a groundbreaking public-private institution in New York City that delivers innovation and equitable community development impacts at a massive scale. A partnership between NYC Parks and the non-profit City Parks Foundation, this structure allows it to deliver resources, programs, technical assistance, and on-the-ground staff support for community partners in every corner of New York.

In this peer-to-peer conversation, members of Partnership for Parks will share their expertise, best practices, and planning systems to keep more than 500 partner groups and more than 25,000 volunteers caring for parks.
