Support Our Parks
The Parks Foundation of Burlington seeks to inspire the spirit of stewardship and philanthropy for our community’s treasured parks and recreation assets for our residents and visitors.
The Burlington Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Burlington, Vermont maintains recreational assets and provides excellent services that help sustain the high quality of life that makes our community such a special place. These assets, programs, and events attract visitors and contribute to our economic base. Without the City’s parks, waterfront resources, the bike path, and the many events and recreational activities, Burlington would be a very different, and much less desirable, place to live and visit.
The Foundation is a separate and independent entity from the City and Parks Department, formed as a tax-exempt non-profit charity governed by its board of directors. Its purpose will be to seek opportunities to enhance the Parks assets and programs through specific initiatives.
