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.

Please join us for a groundbreaking celebration of the Robinson Park Playground Project! Construction is scheduled to begin the week of April 26, so we are quickly gathering to say farewell to the existing play structure.
Kids are welcome, and there will be snacks and activities... They will either play with sidewalk chalk, hang goodbye cards on the play structure, or build snow people – whatever Mother Nature allows!
Masks and social distancing are still encouraged, but not required.

Thank you to all who donated and enabled this project to reach its fullest potential!
