For 100 years, Summit Metro Parks has been made possible thanks to the support of our community. People just like you have volunteered their time, supported park district initiatives and voted in support of its funding. As a result, Summit County residents now enjoy 16 parks with more than 14,000 acres of protected green space and 150 miles of trails to explore.

Make a Centennial Gift
The Summit Metro Parks Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that enhances the work of the park district. Gifts to the Foundation create a lasting legacy for Summit Metro Parks and are a wonderful way to celebrate, honor or remember a loved one.
Give a Centennial Tree
The Centennial Tree Fund helps fill the park district’s Centennial Groves with beautiful, beneficial trees while also supporting the care of the trees for the next 100 years. A $100 donation plants a tree, and donors will receive a personalized certificate, suitable for a gift or remembrance, that identifies the Metro Park where the tree will be planted.
Create a Centennial Legacy
A gift to the Centennial Legacy Fund provides financial stability not just for today, but for as long as we have parks, ensuring their beauty, protected environmental resources, and quality-of-life benefits for future generations. Donors who wish to make a greater impact are invited to contact the Summit Metro Parks Foundation. Centennial Legacy donors will have an opportunity to be included in a donor recognition feature at Centennial Point overlooking the Cuyahoga River in Cascade Valley Metro Park.
