After a Year of Great Happenings –Playing Favorites is OK!
It was an awesome year in the park! Visit the Friends’ Annual Report for an overview of our entire year in review. Every project and program is special to us, but we can’t help but have some favorites.
In 2016, one of these favorite projects was Reforest Garfield.
The fact that we now have over 200 new trees in Garfield Park is terrific. But it’s the level of community engagement that makes this project shoot to the top of our favorites list. Check this out:
- Over 250 volunteers including lots of young people from UIndy, Manual High School, Indiana University-Perdue University (IUPUI), Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
- Engaged sponsors Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. Indianapolis Rotary, Indianapolis Power & Light Company
- The ever-present volunteers from community partners Garfield Park Neighbors Association and our very own Friends of Garfield Park, Inc.,
Thank you for your time, energies, muscles, strong backs, support, and stewardship of our beloved park!
A great park deserves great friends and you all showed how it’s done. We couldn’t have done it without you!
