Washington Parks and People



Washington Parks & People, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, is the capitals hub for activating public lands & waters for broad community revitalization through partnership, innovation, discovery, and workforce development. Our mission is to grow city-wide park-based community health & vitality by nurturing innovation partnerships. Parks & People began 25 years ago in Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park, founded by a range of community and parks leaders and organizations. We led the transformation of the single most violent park in the capital region into one of its safest. Today, we lead greening initiatives across the city, massive land reclamation, native reforestation, watershed restoration, public health and fitness programming, urban agriculture, and green job training to help revitalize our parks and work for justice alongside our local communities.
