Welcome!

The Park People's mission is to work with communities to plant trees and improve parks for a healthy, resilient future.

We improve parks by raising funds for park projects, like the reconstruction of the Cranmer Park Sundial & Plaza, and we support the urban forest through our programs: Denver Digs Trees, Mile High Tree Champions, TreeForceCommunity Forester, and the Park Legacy program.

Rainwater Harvesting

West Denver community members can apply for a free rain barrel, downspout redirect, or mini-rain garden from now until mid-July!

Los miembros de la comunidad de West Denver pueden solicitar gratuitamente un barril de lluvia, una redirección de bajantes o un minijardín de lluvia desde ahora hasta mediados de julio.

English: Rainwater Harvesting
Spanish: Recogida de agua de lluvia

Upcoming Events

Rainwater Harvesting Project

We'll be distributing and installing free materials to community members to help them collect rainwater for irrigation. Get training on how to install rainwater harvesting supplies like rain barrels, downspout redirects, and rain gardens. We're working this summer in low-canopy West Denver neighborhoods to provide supplies for watering trees and plants for cooler, greener communities. 

SIGN UP NOW to volunteer and for more details.
