The Parks & People Foundation is dedicated to supporting a wide range of recreational and educational opportunities; creating and sustaining beautiful and lively parks; and promoting a healthy natural environment for Baltimore.
Friends and supporters (both old and new!) joined us on Friday, September 16th as we toasted Baltimore’s beautiful parks and pledged to keep growing until every community has access to healthy, vibrant green space. Click on the image to view pictures from our 6th Annual Picnic in the Park.
