Friends of Westchester County Parks is excited to announce our new name: Westchester Parks Foundation. Founded in 1977, our organization has grown over 40 years. Our new name, logo and tagline represent who we are today and where we want to be in the future. Our organization works to enrich the park experience for all residents through donations, volunteerism, and more. We are an independent 501(c)3 organization, and while we work closely with the Westchester County Parks Department, we are not part of Westchester County government. We do not receive support through tax dollars.

A thriving parks system is central to the quality of life in Westchester, whether you use the parks every day or just once a year. Parks are an economic driver, open to all members of the community. A place where people of any age can get fit and healthy, and where serene open space is preserved for future generations.

Our mission remains: to engage the public to advocate for and invest in the preservation, conservation, use, and enjoyment of the 18,000 acres of parks, trails, and open spaces within the Westchester County Parks system.

Join us! Your Parks. Your Voice. Your Future.
