New York City´s park system could not have experienced the incredible transformation witnessed within the past decade without the assistance of our many partner organizations. Each organization makes an invaluable contribution to our parks, whether by forming hundreds of neighborhood Friends of Parks groups like Partnerships for Parks, raising millions of dollars for capital and maintenance projects for specific parks like the Central Park Conservancy and the Prospect Park Alliance, or raising funds for projects Citywide, like the City Parks Foundation.

The Department of Parks & Recreation thanks all of its partners and encourages you to support them in whatever way you can. Volunteer, attend an event, donate money, and invest in the greenspaces and creatures you treasure!
