Friends of Lucas Park is comprised of Downtown residents working to improve and beautify our
neighborhood park. We had a very successful 2012 with the installation of a new playground as well
as sod and some landscaping. In 2013 we completed the installation of a new sprinkler system, planted
landscaping throughout the park and installed fitness equipment for ages 5 and up! It was a busy 2 years
and now we are getting ready to open up the park for use. For more information please contact us at the email
on the side of the page. Thanks for checking out Friends of Lucas Park!

Neighborhood Fundraising Campaign

We are kicking off our Neighborhood Fundraising Campaign! We need you, Downtown parents, grandparents and kids at heart to donate to our playground project. We had a fantastic turnout at Bailey's Range and have more neighborhood fundraisers in the works. Almost half of the $40,000 we need has been raised and now we need the neighborhood and future playground users to pitch in and show their support. We are happy to accept donations big and small. Our deadline to raise this money is mid August. Please help out this great cause and help bring a much needed attribute to our neighborhood.
