Friends of Hamilton County Parks

Annual Sustaining Campaign

Active People, Healthy Hamilton County

As a Park Lover and Community Leader, we want to thank you, in advance, for your support in our important work.

The Friends of Hamilton County Parks Foundation (FHCPI) is the first independent foundation in our area supporting the expansion and preservation of parks and park amenities in all of Hamilton County. Our board members are thrilled to communicate and collaborate with our community partners about the opportunities for making Hamilton County an even better place to live, work AND PLAY!

We accomplish our mission with the help of businesses and individuals who experience and appreciate the wonderful active transportation infrastructure and recreational amenities we have here in Hamilton County. FHCPI provides a voice in assuring recreational resources continue to be a priority for the economic, mental and physical health of our residents and visitors. Our goal is to be the collaborative platform for continued growth and expansion of favored recreational assets.

We all know recreation is the best medicine for addressing physical and mental health. So much so that the Center for Disease Control encourages cities to consider this in their design. That’s why we are excited to announce we are teaming up with the Center for Disease Control in the Active People, Healthy Hamilton County campaign, and talking with municipalities about collaborative opportunities for making Hamilton County even better.

We’re asking every city/township to propose a project that we can partner in that exhibits “active living”. We will grant private funds toward a public project to enhance opportunities. How do we choose a project(s)? We’re asking our constituents to vote for the “People’s Choice”. Even more exciting is that our goal is to make this an annual grant opportunity.

We are excited about the possibilities and your input! Stay tuned for more announcements on the Active People Healthy Hamilton County proclamation kick-off! Thank you for your partnership!

Hamilton County is growing rapidly, with 330,455 residents and 402 mi2, development and population continue to grow. Our amazing parks are part of what attracts people to this area. We need to continue to ensure our parks remain vibrant and attractive and that new parks are identified and developed to match the needs of our growing population. Ideas for projects to improve our parks are identified faster than our local governments have the time or resources to bring them to reality. Only the philanthropic support of businesses and community members make it possible. Your donation to our annual sustaining campaign allows us to focus on exciting new additions to your parks. We encourage you to make a donation to the Friends of Hamilton County Parks. Click the “donate now” button below to contribute to the Annual Sustaining Campaign.
