The Park People



Plant Trees






The Park People works with communities to plant trees and improve parks for a healthy, resilient future.

We pursue this mission by raising 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.
