Parks Are Important

Our parks are vital for recreation and quality of life.  Quincyan has a long and proud tradition of actively protecting nature and open spaces within our neighborhoods. Today, the Quincy Park District maintains 31 sites, totaling more than 900 acres of property. As our community grows, so does its need to cultivate and preserve green, open spaces which support the many recreational activities of Quincy families.

Private Support Is Essential

Yes, the Quincy Park District does receive public funding to operate and maintain our parks.  But, tax dollars alone are not enough to the capital, programming, and maintenance needs of our parks system.  And, while the parks need additional funding, it shouldn’t be at the expense of other public services such as education, transportation and public safety.

That’s where the private sector can help. Financial support by individuals, groups and organizations, businesses, and foundations will ensure that Quincy is able to maintain and develop quality parks in which we can continue to take pride.  If our parks are to flourish for our children and their children, we must all do our part.  Your donation of time and money can make a difference.
