Friends of Lovelace Park


After two very productive workdays in the park, all the mulch provided by the city has been distributed. Thank you to all our volunteers for your time and effort!


We hope everyone enjoys the new look.¬†We know the trees will enjoy their healthier environment! Did you know that mulching trees doesn’t just protect tree roots from extreme temperatures all year round, it also conserves moisture, provides nutrients, and improves the soil, all of which make for happier trees.


We’ve only just begun, so keep an eye on this space to learn about our next steps!



Our Mission Statement

We are a group of neighbors living near and enjoying this wonderful recreational resource. We are committed to enhancing the park and assisting the City’s Maintenance Crew by volunteering for the following tasks:

  • Mulching the trees correctly. Click here for a diagram.
  • Working with City Crew when planting new trees to select the proper spots (not in the sledding area).
  • Establishing a pollinator garden to attract butterflies, bees, and other pollinators.
  • Collaborating with other organizations in collecting litter and debris.
  • Offering our services when needed or requested by City Crew.
