These outdoor activations are examples of ways Midtown Parks supports the well-being of the community by creating centrally-located public spaces designed to provide opportunities for recreation, leisure, and to build relationships with neighbors. On Thursday, May 5, Midtown Parks will be joining nearly 700 area nonprofits to raise funds that support critical work and to celebrate community and philanthropy in the Sacramento area. Midtown Parks aims to increase health and community engagement by investing in six Midtown parks: Fremont Park, Truitt Bark Park, Marshall Park, Muir Park, Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park and Winn Park.
