We all know that Tucson and Southern Arizona are world renowned as a center for outdoor recreation. Whether it is our world class year round golf opportunities, hiking or biking, or simply enjoying the great outdoors with friends and family with a picnic or back yard barbeque, Tucsonans take advantage of the many recreational opportunities that surround us.
The City of Tucson is also nationally regarded for it’s outstanding public parks and recreation centers. The difficult times we face require that we all step up to ensure that we maintain and enhance our parks and our recreation programs.
The Tucson Parks Foundation is a 501 C (3) non-profit that supplements and supports the City of Tucson’s park and recreation projects; particularly those that help at risk youth, seniors and the disabled. Over the past 20 years the Tucson Parks Foundation has raised over three million dollars for our community. We would welcome your contributions to support our mission
The Tucson Parks Foundation has committed to a comprehensive program to retrofit existing playground equipment at our parks and recreation centers with shades structures.
