Parks & People supports a network of green communities and great parks by offering financial, in-kind and technical assistance that helps community-led groups transform, activate and maintain public parks and green spaces. With our assistance, residents turn under-utilized and vacant spaces into vibrant, well-maintained places for Baltimore communities to grow, learn, play and enjoy.

Building Greener Communities

Since 1996, Parks & People has invested nearly over $1.6 million in community-led greening projects in Baltimore neighborhoods through its grants program. Funding is just one resource available for community-led greening projects. Any community group interested in creating or enhancing a park or green space in Baltimore may access resources, guidance and connections that will help them plan, create and maintain a thriving green space.
