Be A Friend to Montgomery County Parks

The Montgomery Parks Foundation, announced the launch of a park wide friend’s group- Friends of Montgomery Parks. Friends will receive an e-newsletter and invitations to members-only events. An introductory rate of just $35 is offered through the end of 2011. Memberships and donations can be made on the Foundation website at: www.montgomeryparksfoundation.org/donate

As the grassroots organization for identifying community support for the parks department, Friends of Montgomery Parks is just one aspect of the fundraising plan of the Montgomery Parks Foundation. The Foundation will focus on several additional strategies including encouraging support through donations of trees and benches, and Legacy Naming Rights for Park amenities.

Funding for Montgomery Parks has decreased at an alarming rate over the last three years. These reductions have led to fewer workers, reduced maintenance, and delayed renovations and improvements to Montgomery Parks.
