About the Panhandle Parks Foundation

The Panhandle Parks Foundation, a 501 (c) ( 3) organization, was established in 2003 to support the development of parks, open space and recreational opportunities. We believe this will enhance the quality of life in North Idaho.
Panhandle Parks Foundation can handle unique projects that do not fall into city budgets or guidelines. We rely on land donations in order for our foundation to be successful . Please contact us if you are interested in donating land or recreation property.

Our Foundation directors are made up of members from our community who volunteer a few hours of their time and talents each month for the enhancement of our parks. Our directors work directly with people interested in donating land for preservation and parks, and call on our partners to aid us in completing these opportunities.
