Coldwater Canyon Park is so many wonderful things. And if you’re familiar with our beloved park, you know they’re all true; this is a unique and special place.
Something you may not know? It relies completely on the love and care of TreePeople and patrons like you.
With almost no public funding going to its general upkeep, it is up to us to maintain this treasure. TreePeople takes responsibility for care and maintenance of the park, and we can only do so with the help of our friends and neighbors like you.
That’s why we’re bringing our park family together to relaunch Friends of Coldwater Canyon Park.
When you join Friends of Coldwater Canyon Park, you’re returning some of the love you receive on these familiar trails. By coming together and each giving a little – or a lot! – we ensure that TreePeople has the resources it takes to tend to a healthy park.
Of course, becoming a Friend of Coldwater Canyon Park also has its perks!
As a Friend of the Park, you will receive invites to exclusive events like moonlight hikes, nature tours and dog walks… Contribute a little more, and you will be eligible for free Tree Dedications, discounted or free tickets to Once Upon a Canyon Night performances, and additional savings to park events.
And of course you get to return some of the love you feel every time you walk among these trees.
With Gratitude, Jim Hardie

About the Park
Coldwater Canyon Park is a 45-acre treasure nestled atop the Santa Monica Mountains.
Once the mountain outpost of the Los Angeles Fire Department, it is now a favorite spot for recreation and quiet refuge for everyone in the region.
Coldwater Canyon Park is also home to TreePeople’s headquarters, our nursery, LEED-platinum conference center, the S.Mark Taper Foundation Amphitheatre, a 216,000 gallon rain-capture cistern, educational exhibits, miles of trails and precious native trees. Additionally, the park hosts school tours almost daily during the school year, which is part of TreePeople’s groundbreaking environmental education work.
As a public park, Coldwater Canyon Park receives more than 200,000 visitors a year, but almost no public funding...all general upkeep and support is the responsibility of TreePeople – and you!
You can also pitch in by volunteering at our park work days on Thursdays and occasional Saturdays throughout the year (remember to register!).
