OUR VISION

Creating opportunities where community and nature flourish together

OUR MISSION

The American Canyon Community and Parks Foundation is dedicated to enhancing parks, programs, and play in our community

OUR FOUNDATION

 

The American Canyon Community & Parks Foundation was founded by a dedicated group of community volunteers to support parks, health, and access to open space.

ACCPF is the only local non-profit organization that uses the outdoors to improve community health, children’s education, and social connection in American Canyon.  Fundraising efforts have helped us make a BIG impact in our community. Projects such as the Wetlands Outdoor Fitness Center, Heart Your Parks “Art Walk”, Healthy AC Park and Play Van, Curiosity Kids, StoryWalk, Watershed Explorers, and more help nature and community flourish together.  

We believe that parks and open spaces are an important part of a vibrant community and that equitable access to quality services is an essential part of a rich quality of life for our citizens. 

 

ACCPF would not be able to support its mission without the incredible support of its committed Board Members, devoted Membership, gracious Donors, and amazing Sponsors.
