From Our Editors

Friends of the Parks was born of a specific need more than 35 years ago. At the time, Chicago's city parks and recreational areas existed in shambles. Partnering with volunteers, park-advisory councils, policy experts, governmental officials, and schools, Friends of the Parks sought to establish the parks and forest preserves as public spaces where neighbors could explore and admire the outdoors. They surveyed park conditions and gradually improved the green spaces.

Currently, Friends of the Parks preserves, protects, and promotes the use of public spaces through programs that range from cleanup events for Earth Day to educational field trips for public-school children. The organization actively works to restore the forest preserves and Lake Michigan shoreline and provide public tours and summer internships in natural areas.
