Hello! Many of you know about Friends of Westgate Park, but for those of you who don’t, here is a bit of information. We are an all-volunteer group that has been working in Westgate Park for about 10 years. We were formally recognized by the Columbus Department of Recreation and Parks (CRPD) in 2007 and successfully applied for our 501 c 3 designation in 2013.
We work to beautify and improve the park – adding and maintaining flower beds, creating new pollinator habitat, cleaning up litter, raising funds for park improvements such as benches, and working closely with CRPD to help make the park the best it can be for its visitors and the wildlife that call it home.
We need new board members and volunteers to help ensure the important work we have started will continue. If you would like to be more involved in the park’s direction, if you have ideas or talents you’d like to share, please let us know! We meet at 6:30 p.m. the third Wednesday of each month from February through October at the Westgate Community Center. For more information, call Sue Laughlin at 353-7549 or drop by one of our meetings!
