The Friends of the Parks & Trails of St. Paul and Ramsey County started as a grassroots citizen organization that saved Crosby Farm Park from being developed into a high-rise housing complex in 1984. After that victory the group formally incorporated into a nonprofit in April 1985 with its mission "To assist government in preserving the natural and historic values of our parks and open spaces while promoting increased public appreciation and use of these resources". Early board members worked tirelessly to protect parkland and supported landmark legislation for "no net loss" of parkland, and the establishment of park commissions in St. Paul and Ramsey County, two significant achievements that continue to shape our park systems today. We continue this vital work as new pressures emerge that threaten or encroach upon our parks and open space. We have reorganized and redesigned our strategic plan to embrace equity, inclusivity and accessibility for all who want to enjoy these great public spaces. We will work to educate our members and encourage them to be engaged citizens and take an active role in enhancing and protecting the beautiful public spaces that Horace Cleveland envisioned 150 years ago. Please see to see how we support parks and trails in the Twin Cities. We donate trees to parks and educate the public on park issues to preserve and protect public parks and trails.
