What do you believe the role of private partners should be in maintaining and improving public parks? What actions would you take to strengthen and improve public-private partnerships?

I have always believed that a private citizen or company wanting to donate
time or money to improve our parks and facilities is a good thing. In my
opinion, the Parks department has done well in fostering good working
relationships with many private partners. As long as there is no profit or
gain to be made by the private partner (other than the normal benefits
derived from philanthropy) we should continue to build on and encourage
more of these relationships.
