Creating Parks and Protecting Land for People™. The Trust for Public Land works to protect the places people care about and to create close-to-home parks -- particularly in and near cities, where 80 percent of Americans live. Our goal is to ensure that every child has easy access to a safe place to play in nature. We also conserve working farms, ranches, and forests; lands of historical and cultural importance; rivers, streams, coasts, and watersheds; and other special places where people can experience nature close at hand.

Conservation is just the beginning. Our efforts also build community, enhance public health and safety, and promote park equity. Along with protecting natural landscapes, one of our key goals is that everyone across the U.S. lives within a 10-minute walk of a quality park, trail or green space.
