Prospect Park Association

Serving neighbors since 1901

Prospect Park Association has been hard at work making positive and tangible impacts in your community. As the city's officially recognized citizen participation organization for the neighborhood, PPA serves you in many ways by:

  • Organizing spring/fall river gorge and district cleanups with over 150 volunteers.
  • Sponsoring community-building events such as the Pratt Ice Cream Social, Home Tour, Annual Neighbor-fest, and Luxton Park Concerts.
  • Advocating for tenant rights in a landmark case before the city.
  • Leading beautification projects from bike racks to the Textile Center dye garden.
  • Influencing urban development through active resident engagement. This year over 300 people participated in PPA-led workshops to help guide the area’s future.
  • Advancing sustainability by supporting parks, community gardens and green spaces.
  • Leading the way on historic preservation in the state.
We’re also pleased to report that during 2017 PPA reduced overhead expenses by 24%, passed an external financial systems audit, and earned a Guidestar Silver rank placing us in the top 1% of nonprofits for transparency and accountability.

All our efforts depend on generous contributions of time, expertise, and especially financial support from important community members like you. To keep PPA’s future bright, please give today!!
