Friends of the Park
Friends of the Park Groups
A Friend of the Park group is formed as a first step in creating positive long lasting change in a public park. Friends of the Park groups may start as a committee of a civic association or school. An equal number of Friends of the Park groups simply form with the sole purpose of improving a park. While friends of the parks group can be different in terms of size, scope of work and influence there are many commonalities.
All “Friends of the Park” Groups have the following characteristics:
* a group
* of park users (often neighbors & community leaders)
* actively working
* to improve one or more parks (usually one)
& in a defined geographic area (usually a neighborhood)
"… I wanted to ensure that every park on the Westside would have a Friend of the Park Group because that is the only way to ensure that your park has a caretaker."
-- Andy Fellers, Friends of West Manor Park
Becoming a member of an existing “Friends” group or starting your own “Friends” group is a great first step!
