Because of COVID-19, City Parks Foundation is taking precautionary measures in all of our programs.
After suspending It’s My Park due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will welcome back dedicated community groups and new volunteers alike at IMP-act Day on Saturday, August 8. Help care for our parks at this citywide day of service. Find a project here.
The It’s My Park Project Leader Application and the Group Request Form continue to be suspended. We appreciate your patience as we have been developing new protocols to help you volunteer safely by ensuring certain measures are taken, tools are available, and staff have the capacity.
You can connect with your outreach coordinator or Catalyst organizer, email ItsMyPark@cityparksfoundation.org, or join our email list to get the most up-to-date information and learn what other opportunities are available at this time.
Help care for parks across the city by lending a hand to beautify a neighborhood green space. It’s My Park offers opportunities to give back by cleaning, painting, weeding, planting, and more.

Whether you’re looking to help out in your neighborhood park, volunteer as a group, or lead your own It’s My Park project, take the next step and make an IMP-act!
