The San Francisco Parks Alliance is born!
Neighborhood Parks Council and San Francisco Parks Trust are now one, bringing together the best of civic engagement and philanthropy to protect, sustain, and enrich San Francisco parks and green open spaces.
We are busy building San Francisco Parks Alliance from the ground up, including a new website. Please visit our launch progress page at www.sfparksalliance.org for information, updates, and to join us as we create a new, stronger voice for parks!
Celebrating 15 years of Park Stewardship
Fifteen years ago NPC was a fledgling nonprofit founded by just eight grassroots park groups. Our vision was the same as we hold to now: To engage citizens in improving their public spaces.
Today, we celebrate many accomplishments and look forward to an even more fruitful future as we create a new park-serving organization – the San Francisco Parks Alliance.
NPC will be operating as the SF Parks Alliance starting Monday, October 3, 2011.

This new organization will be called the San Francisco Parks Alliance. We are asking for your help in ensuring its success as an advocacy, support and leadership entity for San Francisco parks and park users.
