Our Strategic Plan

In early 2016, Parks & People Foundation embarked on a landmark strategic planning process, involving all staff, board, and a wide range of community stakeholders. In a series of thought-provoking discussions, we asked ourselves questions like, "why do we exist?" and "what change do we want to see?" -- ultimately arriving at one basic tenet to guide our work: parks exist for people

This idea led to a new mission statement - To unite Baltimore through parks - and a Strategic Plan encompassing the following focus areas: 

  • Building Greener Communities and Great Parks 
  • Inspiring Young People to Care for Green Space in Their Community 
  • Advocating for Parks and Green Space in Baltimore
  • Strengthening the Organization for the Long Term
