Make your team
a Green Team!


The Chicago Parks Foundation's Park Service Days program connects local companies to the heart of our communities - our parks! With over 600 parks and 26 miles of lakefront, we'll coordinate a park improvement project that's a perfect match for your team. Volunteering in our neighborhood parks helps to keep them clean and beautiful, and provides a unique opportunity for your employees to work together outdoors. Join us!

It was a fun team building experience spending the day outside beautifying one of Chicago’s great parks. It felt so rewarding when we found out that we picked up over 40 lbs. of garbage!
