25 Years of People + Parks

Since 1992, Austin Parks Foundation has been committed to ensuring the future of Austin’s parks, trails and green spaces. We provide resources, programming and funding to ensure access to parks for every Austinite. We create volunteer opportunities (both large and small), activation programming and even large, capital improvement projects. APF has been at the center of promoting park development, maintenance, accessibility and improvements all over Austin for 25 years.

In 2017, APF:

  • Deployed nearly 6,500 volunteers at more than 280 park projects across Austin
  • Granted more than half a million dollars to Adopt-A-PArk groups and neighborhood volunteers via our ACL Music Festival Grants Program for community-initiated park improvement projects
  • Invested more than $490,000 in volunteer labor back into city parks
  • Increased our investment to historically underserved communities by 57% to continue to resolve disparities in parks, and promote active lifestyles
