Volunteer Park Trust
The Volunteer Park Trust was created by citizens to fully realize the dream for Seattle’s crown jewel, Volunteer Park. Our focus is to protect and preserve this treasured city and national landmark for today and for generations to come.
Volunteer Park is a green refuge in the heart of diverse and densely populated neighborhoods. It serves as a place of contemplation, celebration, recreation and delight. The Trust’s shared purpose is to preserve and enhance the park for everyone to enjoy: for picnicking, wading, sunbathing and tossing a Frisbee; for enjoying Shakespeare and listening to music; exploring The Seattle Asian Art Museum; lingering in the Conservatory on a gray day; and for so much more.
Our beloved, most prominent historic park is in need of immediate and long-term stewardship beyond what the city can do. Its future – and the precious legacy left to all of us by the Olmsted Brothers and their breathtaking design – is in jeopardy. In response to this challenge, the Trust is working in partnership with neighbors, Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Seattle Parks Foundation and others.
