Your Arcadia Parks Foundation

The Arcadia Parks Foundation is the official non-profit supporting the recreation and parks program in the City of Arcadia. 

We strongly believe in the purpose of parks and their ability to strongly connect people through play and community programs.


The mission of the Arcadia Parks Foundation is to build community health, wellness, and togetherness through the preservation, promotion, and enhancement of public parks, greenspaces, and recreation programs for present and future generations.
