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!
