Austin Parks Foundation

People + Parks Since 1992

Austin Parks Foundation is committed to ensuring the future of Austin’s parks, trails and green spaces. We provide resources, programming and funding to ensure access to parks for every Austinite. We create volunteer opportunities (both large and small), activation programming and even large, capital improvement projects. APF has been at the center of promoting park development, maintenance, accessibility and improvements all over Austin for over 27 years.

The Challenge Facing Austin's Parks

While Austin appears at the top of almost every “best of” list, ParkScore by the Trust for Public Lands ranked Austin 43rd out of the 100 most populous U.S. cities for how well we meet residents’ need for parks. When compared to other cities, we shine in the amount of dedicated parkland we have. But when it comes to ensuring that all Austinites have access to green spaces, and that we are investing and maintaining them, we fall incredibly short. At APF, we feel a critical responsibility to invest in and maintain our parks for future generations.
