Revitalize the Grounds at Riverside Park

Help care for the gardens surrounding Riverside Park's volunteer house at 108th street. The Conservancy depends on volunteers to help maintain this large native plant garden. Volunteers will be planting, weeding and maintaining the area throughout the growing season. Join the Conservancy once or on an ongoing basis to enjoy the park as it changes throughout the year.

Riverside Park Conservancy nurtures Riverside Park’s well-being, helps preserve its historic nature and leads the community in developing active stewardship. Founded in 1986 by small group of community activists, today Riverside Park Conservancy is a strong nonprofit partner with both the City and the community in conserving, improving and beatifying Riverside Park’s 330 acres.
