Parks Legacy

Hubbard Park Tower in Fall

All of our Parks were created through generous donations of land or funds from people who felt passionate about keeping land open and accessible for future generations. This spirit of generosity has led to the amazing network of parks and trails that we enjoy today.

Our Parks Legacy Fund supports the strategic expansion of our Parks System, and matches grant funds for large capital improvement projects. You can support this goal through a donation of funds, stock, or a legacy gift. Please consider an annual donation as part of your annual giving plan. 

Some of our recent successful projects include:

  • 78-acre expansion to Hubbard Park in 2021. 
  • Construction of a Universally Accessible Trail from the New Shelter to the Tower in Hubbard Park in 2022. 

To learn more about the fund, please contact Parks Director Alec Ellsworth at aellsworth@montpelier-vt.org.

All donations to Montpelier Parks are tax deductible under section 170(c)(1) of the tax code (just like donations to a 501(c)(3), just a different tax #!).
