$10,000 Goal

Midtown Parks, which focuses on investing in Fremont Park, Marshall Park, Sutter's Fort, Muir Park, Truitt Bark Park and Winn Park, was established in 2019 as the 501(c)(3) arm of the Midtown Association. Midtown Parks aims to support the well-being of the community by creating centrally located public spaces that provide opportunities for recreation, leisure, and to build relationships with neighbors. Parks and open spaces encourage active lifestyles and promote social interaction, which are essential components of enhancing physical and mental health. Based on hundreds of proven public-private partnership models throughout the country, Midtown Parks provides a path towards achieving these goals.


Increasing health and community engagement by investing in Midtown parks.


Unrestricted funding enables Midtown Parks to direct investments where it is needed most, whether that is to capital improvements such as the all-weather umbrellas at Truitt Bark Park, ambient market lights at Winn Park, or the Muir Park basketball court mural, or our health and wellness programming which includes yoga, Pilates, bootcamps and other activities free to the community at Sutter’s Fort, Fremont Park, and Winn Park.

Funding that is designated to a specific park, program or project enables Midtown Parks to provide robust experiences for residents and visitors in our community. By indicating where you want your donation to go, you can ensure that you are supporting what speaks to your heart. Do you have children and want to support kids’ programming at Muir Park? Do you want to support opportunities for everyone in our community to take advantage of free fitness classes at Fremont Park and Winn Park? Let us know and we'll direct your donation there.

Midtown Parks is actively seeking partnerships and collaboration opportunities. One of our most successful collaborations has been around our summer wellness programs—Fresh Air: Fremont Park, Workout at Winn, and Friday Flow at Sutter's Fort. We have partnered with Yoga Moves Us, Her Elevated, Amy Yang, Kendra Cannoy, and others to bring free fitness classes to the Midtown community. Since their start in 2019, these programs held a combined total of 369 activities and hosted over 11,000 attendees. We are looking to expand on these existing partnerships in 2023 and hope to bring in art-related activities, kids-focused programming, and more, so please reach out if you have an idea and would like to discuss ways we can help bring that to fruition.
