County Park Friends understands that access to green spaces is a social determinant of health, and that there are clear barriers to equity that must be addressed for our community to thrive. With that lens, Friends invests in People and Places, centering community voice for the co-design of programs and policies as the foundation for change. Whether co-design of a program or fiscal sponsorship of a park capital project, we are here to help YOU activate the power of our parks.
Our Mission is to preserve, protect, improve and promote the use of Santa Cruz County parks and open spaces for recreational activities, arts and cultural activities to benefit all generations in our diverse community. Donations to us are tax deductible 501(c)(3) organization Tax ID #77-0209249
