Fred's Facts

The 1974 tornado destroyed eighty percent of Cherokee Park’s hardwood trees, and galvanized new support for restoring the parks.

Your help is needed to restore, enhance and forever protect all the historic Frederick Law Olmsted Parks. No matter how many hours or days you volunteer your help will strengthen and revitalize our community. Opportunities range from working in the parks, to the office, or at neighborhood festivals.

Individuals, families and groups can join us as we root out invasive plants, rebuild trails, restore native plants and renew structures in our Frederick Law Olmsted Parks! We provide the gloves, tools, refreshments and guidance; you just need to dress for the weather and working outdoors.

Please visit our Events page for a list of upcoming opportunities.

I volunteer in parks because I’ve been going to them since I was a kid with my father. I want to give back and help maintain the parks so that others can enjoy them just as I have for many years.
