You can be part of the volunteer Playground Build Committee! Join FSP Saturday, April 14 from 9-10:30am at in the Arch Room at the First Unitarian Society of Ithaca for a conversation about the Stewart Park Inclusive Playground and the community build happening this September. From volunteer recruitment to carpentry, their is a role for you on this team!
You can help prepare our beautiful public lakefront park for a long season of picnics, recreation, concerts, and relaxation through this afternoon of spring cleaning. Volunteers will meet in the parking lot between the two main pavilions to help collect litter and do some light gardening. Bring a trash bag and gardening gloves, and together we'll practice good stewardship of our city park!
FSP will be hosting a public presentation and conversation on Wednesday, March 21st, at the Cherry ArtSpace on Cherry Street in the city's West End, across from Ports of New York. Please join Friends of Stewart Park at 5:30 pm to learn more about playground plans and how you can help build the playground, as well as exciting news about other Stewart Park revitalization projects.
Two Central Park Conservancy Landscape Architects and graduates of Cornell's Landscape Architecture Program present an overview of Central Park history and Central Park Conservancy’s completed and current work as park stewards. Ticket sales from this presentation will benefit the revitalization of our own beautiful Stewart Park!
