City Parks Alliance is the only independent, nationwide membership organization solely dedicated to urban parks. It unites and serves a growing network of hundreds of civic and community leaders, government agencies, parks and recreation authorities, funders and others.

City Parks Alliance was established in fall 2000 by a nationwide group of urban parks administrators and advocates. It is an outgrowth of the Lila Wallace-Reader’s Digest Fund’s Urban Parks Initiative in the 1990s.

CPA’s mission is to create vibrant and healthy parks and green spaces that contribute to sustainable cities by organizing, facilitating and nurturing a broad-based movement. CPA’s vision is that everyone in urban America will live within walking distance of a park that is clean, safe and vibrant.
