Parks & People Foundation

Parks + People = Community

Join us in connecting everyone in Baltimore to nature, their community and each other through vibrant parks and green spaces

We believe that creating access to healthy, vibrant outdoor spaces – parks, gardens, playing fields, bike paths, landscaped boulevards, campuses and other green spaces – yields nearly unlimited benefits:

  • Producing communities and goodwill among neighbors
  • Creating identity for people and place
  • Increasing mental health and physical activity
  • Reducing stress levels and mental fatigue
  • Improving air and water quality
  • Attracting wildlife and pollinators
  • Strengthening property values and homeownership rates


Parks & People helps communities transform vacant lots and unused space into community gardens, play spaces, outdoor classrooms and gathering spaces. We provide the resources and guidance to make the community’s vision a reality.

Interested applicants should contact Parks & People by filling out the brief online form. A staff person will follow up with you to set up a time to discuss your project and refer you to next steps that will help you prepare for your project.

Applications for funding are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed quarterly. Applicants must attend a project planning workshop prior to applying for a start-up grant however, all applicants are strongly encouraged to attend. Visit our greening calendar to sign up for the next project planning workshop.

Grants are available to start a new project or upgrade an existing project. Grants up to $5,000 are available.
