WHY JOIN

Chicago has an incredible parks system, one of the oldest and largest in the nation. With more than 600 parks, 230 field houses, 26 miles of Lakefront, and thousands of vital programs, there is plenty of room to integrate innovative ideas and meet unique community needs.

That’s where we come in. We established the Chicago Parks Foundation to give our parks a much-deserved place within Chicago’s charitable landscape.

Our goal is to help park users and lovers become park givers and stewards.

As a member of the Chicago Parks Foundation, you’ll help ensure that every community voice is heard and every park story is told so that we can continue to celebrate our 8,500+ acres of public green space for generations to come. Join us!
