About South Suburban Park Foundation: Founded in 1979, the South Suburban Park Foundation was created to enrich open spaces and to improve park and recreational amenities for residents of the south suburban communities. We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board who represent businesses, civic groups, trail users and community members of the south metro area.
For more than a quarter century our vision has been instrumental in creating much-needed open space opportunities for south metro communities and residents of all ages.
Margaret Mead once said "never doubt what a small group of committed people can accomplish." In the early 1980's, Mary Hampton Carter took on the task of leading such a group of committed people. Aimed with a vision and little more that $5 in the South Suburban Park Foundation treasury, she stepped forward to lead what seemed to be a daunting task— the creation of an 8-mile, $4 million greenway running the length of Platte through Arapahoe County. That’s just the beginning!
Being a non-profit community organization, the South Suburban Park Foundation accepts and encourages grants and contributions from public and private partners to help us meet our mission. For more information please visit our website at www.sspf.org.
