It's a critical time for California parks.
Our local and state parks systems are failing to meet the needs of a diverse and urban population, prompting discussion about reform. Many communities lack access to parks and recreational opportunities, leaving residents frustrated that their needs are not met and their voices not heard.
With crucial decisions looming about the future of California’s parks, we need to do better. Parks Now has developed a coalition of civic leaders to ensure local communities and diverse interests have a voice in determining California’s future.
- Parks that meet the needs of an increasingly urban, diverse, and young California
- Parks that are safe, well-kept, and readily accessible to our communities
- A parks workforce and leadership that reflects California’s diverse communities and listens to the needs of the public
