The Roanoke Parks Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists to support the City of Roanoke’s Parks and Recreation Department by raising funds, accepting gifts and providing other resources to enhance existing programs, services, facilities and technology. We do this by working with donors, volunteers, and leaders in our community who want to help us improve the quality of life for all Roanoke residents and visitors. Learn more about potential projects for the Roanoke Parks Foundation, and donate to help make them a reality.
