The Conservancy was born to bring Hance Park back to life

Our mission is to activate and unite our community by promoting the creative use of public space and a vibrant arts and cultural experience.

WHO WE ARE 

The Hance Park Conservancy was established in 2010 and is the catalyst for a new chapter of public space renewal in Phoenix, advocating for the park and protecting its future.  

We are a community-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and have been instrumental in developing the Hance Park Master Plan, adopted by the City of Phoenix in 2014.  We are actively raising funds to help make this plan a reality. 

We are community, city, and business leaders committed to ensuring a bright future for Hance Park, and by extension, Phoenix's burgeoning downtown, and the greater Phoenix Metropolitan Region.
