Contribute to Coleman Memorial Park

For the past 75 years Coleman Memorial Park has provided the community with nature, history, recreation and family fun while maintaining traditions of the past and preserving the park for future generations to come. With the next 75 years approaching Coleman Memorial Park is poised on the edge of looking at the future and planning how the park will best serve the community. Coleman Memorial Park depends upon the support of individuals and area businesses to carry out its mission. When recreation funding is stretched to meet the needs of a growing population, donations furnish the financial assistance necessary to maintain the park and achieve a number of worthwhile goals. Your support is critical in the ongoing effort to preserve, interpret, and present to the public an inviting park that is rich in history and bursting with activity.

Ways to Contribute

Coleman Memorial Park Trust Fund

Coleman Memorial Park requires special care for its preservation for future generations. The Coleman Memorial Park Trust Fund was established to provide for the long-term care and sustainability of the park.

 

Coleman Memorial Park General Fund

The Coleman Memorial Park general Fund supports current projects and provides financial assistance with the maintenance of the park and the park's aging equipment. 

Sponsor a Park Event 

Once a year the Friends of Coleman Memorial Park holds a free signature event geared toward youth. This celebratory event is designed to raise funds and encourage an awareness of the parks history and natural resources. Future stewards of nature and the park begins with nurturing the passion of today's youth. Proceeds raised through sponsorships and donations will enable us to keep our events free to the public. All proceeds exceeding expenses is dedicated to one of many projects involving youth and recreation.

To celebrate the autumn season the Annual Harvest Festival is also a youth event featuring many fun activities including a guided historical hay ride tour through the park. This event has been going strong for over 12 years and we hope to add a few new activities!

Friends of Coleman Memorial Park provide a number of apportunities for support of their events.

Commemorative Tree and Bench Program

Coleman Memorial Park periodically receives request for tree and bench donations. The Commemorative Tree and Bench Program were created to support the forestry and amenity endeavors in the park and allow family and friends to honor loved ones. Through this commemorative program, one can provide a unique dedication to loved ones, honor a special occasion or simply support the park.

 

This dedication provides a lasting remembrance in honor of a loved one and enhances the meaning of a tree to observers. This gift is also a valuable contribution to the park system and keeps on giving to the community for years to come.

We want a ground to which people may easily go after their day's work is done, and where they may stroll for an hour, seeing, hearing, and feeling nothing of the bustle and jar of the streets … We want the greatest possible contrast with the restraining and confining conditions of the town, which compel us to walk circumspectly, watchfully, jealously, which compel us to look closely upon others without sympathy. ... a simple broad, open space of greensward ... depth of wood and enough about it ... to completely shut out the city from our landscapes. -Fredrick Law Olmstead
