The Park People



Plant Trees






The Park People works to preserve, enhance, and advocate for Denver's parks, recreation resources, open space and urban forest. We pursue this mission by raising private funds for park enhancements and capital projects, like the reconstruction of the Cranmer Park Sundial & Plaza, and through our programs: Denver Digs Trees, Mile High Tree Champions, Community Forester and the Park Legacy program.

In light of the impacts of COVID-19, our team is assessing the path forward for our spring activities.  Please stay tuned for more information.
