A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE FRIENDS OF RUNYON CANYON

We are you.  A Runyon lover.  A Friend of Runyon. Our goal is to help the cash-strapped city to preserve, maintain and beautify this valuable public resource and make it one of the top public parks in the country. 

Did you know that Runyon Canyon gets close to 2 million visitors a year?  Yes, 2 million visitors! That's why and how the Friends of Runyon Canyon started. We are group of park enthusiasts and local residents who came together to preserve, maintain and beautify Runyon Canyon. In a world where people band together against things, we wanted to band together to make something good happen.  #LoveRunyonCanyon

Since 2013, we have engaged hundreds of donors, friends, and dog lovers to help make Runyon Canyon Park a better place for EVERYONE. We work in close partnership with the City of Los Angeles and local community organizations.  We are proud of all we have accomplished in such a short time, and look forward to working with you to preserving and maintaining our beloved park.  

The Friends of Runyon Canyon Foundation is a charitable non-profit 501c3 organization.

You are probably asking yourself...is there anything I can do to help?

Tons! To start, donate. If you're unable to contribute money there are still many ways to help the cause! We organize park cleanup days, outreach events, and, since we're a working board, can always use help with administrative tasks. Many hands make for light work—and we could definitely use the help.  Sign up below.

We look forward to seeing you at Runyon!

WHAT WE DO

 

RAISING AWARENESS AND FUNDS TO PRESERVE, MAINTAIN AND BEAUTIFY THE PARK.

Here's where things get tricky. We are unable to DO anything. Only the LA City Department of Recreation and Parks can make changes in the park. What we can do is FUND and raise AWARENESS. We raise money for projects related to Runyon Canyon that the city already has on its "to do" list, but for which it lacks the funding to move forward.

Past projects we've raised funds for and completed are:

  • First-ever demographic survey of park visitors & usage
  • Purchase and installation of bike racks, benches, and garbage cans
  • Innovative 4 way water fountain 
  • Resurfaced fire road 
  • New water fountains 

Current projects we're fundraising for and working on:

  • Preserving the West Trail & open land
  • Erosion control & storm water runoff
  • Trail repair
  • More bike racks, benches, and trash containers
  • Tree planting
