Our Work

Our parks are essential public resources where memories are created, skills are learned, and environmental stewards are born. In the spirit of collaboration with Montgomery Parks, the Montgomery Parks Foundation is committed to protecting our county’s precious ecosystems, to celebrating our cultural treasures, and to fostering community connections.

About Us

Gazebo at Brookside Gardens.

The Montgomery Parks Foundation was founded in 1992 with the goal of sustaining and enhancing an award-winning park system by obtaining critically needed funding from sources beyond those supported by the county’s annual appropriations.  As the county population has grown over the years, the demands for access to vital greenspaces and innovative programming has placed increased pressure on the parks system to deliver additional resources to the community.

When the Montgomery Parks budget is not enough to meet the demands placed on it, our dedicated team helps secure philanthropic dollars from generous community members and businesses to help fill the funding gap.  To achieve this, we rely on our network of supporters who share our passion for the incredible natural beauty of our landscapes, the endless recreational opportunities and the robust educational programming offered throughout the park system.

Thanks to the heartfelt support of our donors, park partners and advocates, we continue investing in an ever-evolving public asset that connects, engages and activates our tight-knit community.
