Friends of Center City Park

About Friends of Center City Park

We invite you to become a Friend of Center City Park!

Friends of Center City Park is a support group, created to ensure that the Park remains a beautiful and inviting space. Friends of Center City Park helps generate awareness about the Park and raises funds through memberships. Membership contributions supplement operations and maintenance support provided by the City of Greensboro and the Business Improvement District and are used for Park programming and enhancements.

Through your annual contribution you will receive recognition, advance notices of Park events, a periodic newsletter and invitations to special events.

A cross section of citizens provided input for Center City Park’s design as well as financial support to make the Park a reality. Now this investment is enjoyed by everyone in the community, from individuals to groups both large and small.

Whether you visit the Park to socialize, have lunch, watch the fountain, be entertained or simply enjoy the pleasure of a green retreat, the Park is available for all.

Join Friends of Center City Park today and help keep the heart of Greensboro thriving and beautiful.
