About us

City Parks Foundation (“CPF”) is the only independent, nonprofit organization whose mission is to offer programs in parks throughout the five boroughs of New York City. We work in more than 350  parks citywide, presenting a broad range of programs in an effort to promote healthy and vibrant  communities. Our initiatives reach 425,000 people each year.  Artistic, athletic, educational and park  advocacy programs connect high needs communities with their local green spaces.  CPF helps turn  New York City’s parks into centers of community development while helping to create strong local  leaders. The majority of our programming is provided at no cost, and we work in neighborhoods that would not otherwise have access to such resources. Signature programming includes: SummerStage, Partnerships for Parks, shows at the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater in Central Park, Tennis/Golf/Track & Field sports programming for kids and seniors, and educational partnerships that promote healthy living and teach environmental science.
