Austin Parks Foundation (APF) is a non-profit organization devoted to building public-private partnerships that develop and maintain parks, trails and open space in Austin and Travis County. Founded 25 years ago, APF hosts volunteer workdays and park activation events, provides resources for Adopt-A-Park leaders throughout the city, and offers training and education programs.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for people in Austin and Travis County by addressing the city’s funding and resource gap in order to develop, maintain and enhance the area’s 300+ parks, trails and green spaces.
Austin Parks Foundation focuses on volunteerism, park activation programming and public-private partnerships like the Adopt-A-Park program and some special capital projects. Check out the menus above to learn more.
