The Park People



Plant Trees






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, Community Forester, and the Park Legacy program.

Upcoming Events

PARK(ing) Day at Union Station

We're partnering with the American Society of Landscape Architects on this inspiring open-source, global event where citizens, artists, and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into PARK(ing) spaces: temporary public places.  PARK(ing) Day elevates and celebrates public space and helps urban communities think about the importance of public open spaces and park land.  Come check out the street-side installations we'll have at Union Station!

Westwood Tree Planting Events

In partnership with Trust for Public Land, Groundwork Denver, Westwood Unidos, CEDaR, and neighborhood residents, The Park People will plant trees to improve green infrastructure and livability in the Westwood neighborhood.
