Partnerships for Parks is an innovative joint program of City Parks Foundation & NYC Parks.
Founded in 1995, we help New Yorkers work together to make neighborhood parks thrive. Ultimately, our work supports a culture of collaboration among people and government that recognizes that parks are vital centers of community life.
Partnerships received the prestigious Innovations in American Government Award in 2000 and is called upon to share best practices with counterparts from locations as widespread as Anchorage, Philadelphia, Berlin, and Tokyo.
