Parks  Supporters

The Greater Metro Parks Foundation’s mission is to nurture community-based initiatives and create partnerships to encourage active lifestyles, healthy living and improve the environment in the Tacoma area.  To this end, the Foundation works in tandem with the Metropolitan Park District of Tacoma (MPT) to create strategic funding initiatives for priority projects.  These include support for capital projects, arts, youth sports and development, fitness and wellness, specialized recreation, heritage and special events.   


Hundreds of generous community members and local businesses rose to the occasion and supported the Zina Linnik Project at Wright and McCarver Parks. To view a full list of all those who contributed, click here.


Partnering with the Greater Metro Parks Foundation means supporting a specific park, project, recreation program or facility.  Our staff works with your community group to identify a suitable park and/or recreation opportunity that meets your needs and supports our local parks.
