Where would New York City be without its green spaces, its playgrounds, its pools and its beaches? Great parks create vibrant, welcoming neighborhoods. They create a sense of community, stability and civic pride in a dense, rapidly shifting city.

New Yorkers for Parks is the independent research-based advocacy organization dedicated to preserving and improving these spaces, to ensuring that resources for these spaces are equitably distributed, and that they’re well-maintained – not just right after they’re built, but for generations to come. 

We’ve been doing this work since 1908, and you can become part of this venerable legacy with even the smallest donation. After all, it’s the generosity of our donors that allows us to continue our critical work at a time of great strain on the City’s parks budget.

Your gift goes toward improving the parks, neighborhoods, and health of our city.
