San Diego County Parks Society


The San Diego County Parks Society was established in 1980 by a group of citizens concerned about the future of San Diego's county parks.

The Society's objective is to assist the County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation and its programs. We strive to increase public awareness of the county parks' resources, activities, and needs.

The San Diego County Parks Society, a non-profit 501(c)3, accepts tax deductible donations through PayPal.

Play a virtual role in helping maintain and operate County parks and facilities, and to help to continue and expand programming.

The San Diego County Parks Society accepts online donations up to $4,999.00, but if you are interested in making a larger donation, please call (858) 565-3600 between 8 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday, or e-mail
