Park People Conference Logo


Park People supports and mobilizes community park groups, community organizers, non-profits, park professionals and funders who activate the power of parks.

Through Canada-wide and city-specific programs and events, funding, resources, research and professional services, they help realize the power of parks to build strong communities, healthy environments, and resilient cities.


For the first time ever, The Park People Conference was brought to life as a virtual experience: three days full of insightful, inspiring, and powerful content with 90+ speakers across 30+ dynamic sessions.

Attendees were able to engage with park professionals, community park group leaders, non-profit organizations, and municipal staff to explore the many opportunities and obstacles in building an abundant future for Canadian city parks.

The event featured fully bilingual capabilities with simultaneous interpretation for selected sessions, interactive workshops, and ample networking opportunities for attendees to chat with speakers and each other.
