Houston’s parks connect us to each other across communities. Parks also serve as spaces of joy and celebration where we are united by the common space under our feet. Houston Parks Board’s Annual Luncheon returns, in person, on October 19th as we celebrate the greenspaces we turned towards to walk, jog, bike, and simply relax outdoors at a time when we needed it most. Join us to celebrate the greenspaces that bring us closer to our families and our neighbors, to the city we love, and the things that matter most.

Registration for this event has now closed. To continue to support our mission and direct your gift for the luncheon, please donate here and note "luncheon" in the comment box.

Thank you to our 2021 Luncheon Sponsors!
