For the Love of Parks, let’s party!

What is it?

For the Love of Parks is a month-long campaign hosted by The Parks Alliance and presented by Sinclair Recreation to raise awareness and funding for parks. We have aligned this campaign with Parks and Rec Month and partnered with local businesses to curate micro-fundraisers that celebrate parks and support The Park Alliance throughout the month of July.   

For the Love of Parks serves as Indy’s city-wide fundraising experience to celebrate and give back to parks. Residents can show their love for parks by dining, drinking, and having fun with hyper-local partners all July. No coupons or codes to participate!  

When is it?

All July, but were kicking this month-long celebration off on June 30th at Becker Supply in The Garage. Join us from 4-7pm for the first look at our new and limited edition For The Love of Parks t-shirts, get some swag, and meet The Parks Alliance team.
