Mission & Vision Statement:
The Dallas Parks Foundation was organized in 2004 as a 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization with a mission to achieve a premier citywide system of parks* that is sustainable throughout the 21st century by:
- Securing and administering private funds to enhance and maintain parks throughout Dallas
- Promoting increased public funding for the Dallas park system as a whole
- Increasing community awareness of, stewardship of and participation in all Dallas parks
Great cities are known for their grand public places and great parks. It is the intention of the Dallas Parks Foundation to work alongside the Dallas Park and Recreation Department and the Dallas Park Board to recover the quality and prestige of the Dallas parks system, regain the confidence and enthusiasm of our citizens and reposition Dallas Parks once again as a recognized state and national leader.
*To include public open spaces not within the Dallas Parks System.
