"Friends of the Park" are persons who want to help keep our Community Park thriving and growing by making monetary and/or time donations toward the maintenance and up-keep. Association Membership dues are also utilized toward Park improvements, as all costs for the up-keep and maintenance at the Park are the responsibility of the Civic Association's "Friends of the Park" project, as per our Park-Partnership agreement with the Marion County Parks & Recreation Department. Expenses are paid through donations, fund raising activities, and annual membership dues contributed by residents, visitors, and local businesses who support our numerous activities.  Through their generosity, we are able to do many good things within the community.  Membership is $20 per person per year, or $35 per year for businesses/organizations.  For additional information, please contact us or attend any of our quarterly meetings.

Members & Supporters are the reason we're able to do all that we do, and our members do make a big difference within our community!  Donations of any dollar amount are gratefully accepted and membership is $20 per calendar year, per person or $35 per year for businesses/organizations.  For additional information, please contact us or attend our quarterly meetings.
