Volunteer: It's My Park

Because of COVID-19, City Parks Foundation is taking precautionary measures in all of our programs. It’s My Park adheres to City recommended safety guidelines.

Following the recent citywide workplace vaccination order issued by the City, volunteers ages 5 and up who wish to participate in It’s My Park projects must be vaccinated (if eligible).



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.

We connect you to a network of volunteers who are sustaining local park communities by providing the resources to make a tangible, lasting difference.

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!
