Through five different themes—nature, growth, collaboration, activation, and inclusion—we dove deep into the numbers and stories to paint a picture of what’s happening in city parks across Canada.


Parks improve resiliency and contribute to the ecological integrity of our environment, creating opportunities for people to connect with urban nature.


Parks across Canada keep pace with population growth and community needs with budgets that support a well-maintained park system


Cities engage partners to bring fresh ideas, new models, and alternative funding to support well-maintained, programmed, and inclusive parks.


Parks are platforms for people to come together through community engagement and programming that invites diverse participants to get involved.


Parks welcome people of all ages, abilities, identities, and backgrounds, and foster connections that nurture learning, respect, and relationships across differences.
