“To engage the Denton community to enhance the mission of the Denton Parks Department to unite, grow and play.”
For over three decades we have collaborated with the City of Denton, corporations, foundations and individuals alike. Together, we work to meet the needs and expectations of our community. And as a result, we help fill the gap that exists when our park’s needs surpass the tax dollars available.
We believe that when a community unites, parks get better.
It’s our vision to unite people over parks and play through investments, advocacy, and volunteerism resulting in accessibility and a quality life for all residents.
Denton resident’s lives are enriched by our city’s outstanding parks system. Including 44 plus parks and trails, 28 playgrounds, 25 bridges, 23 pavilions, dozens of sports facilities, 5 recreation centers and gyms and too many classes to count. While the Denton Parks Foundation collaborates with the Denton Parks and Recreation Department, we are a separate 501(c)3 organization. Hence we have no direct affiliation with the City of Denton. and are governed by own board of directors.
