Free the Parks # FreetheParks

Free the Parks is Toronto Park People´s campaign to eliminate permit and insurance fees for volunteer park groups who activate and care for parks through community events and natural stewardship.

The permit and insurance costs are challenging for groups across the city, but especially in low-income neighbourhoods. We believe it is fundamentally wrong to charge volunteers for the privilege of improving their parks.

Park volunteers make communities stronger, safer, more inclusive and resilient by bringing together diverse residents to share public space.

The city should incentivize the work of volunteer park groups with a simplified no-fee permit process and insurance covered by the city.
