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!

Fundraising Milestone

Thanks to the Mardi Gras Foundation and their $10,000 donation we have secured funds to purchase the playground equipment!

Lucas Park Volunteer Lead Clean Ups

Join your neighbors on Saturday August 11th and help kick-off our park renovations. Clean up will start at 8:00 am. Tools will be provided, bring water and sunscreen. Rain date will be Aug. 12th. If needed there will be another clean up on Aug. 18th to prepare the site for the new playground equipment.  Stay tuned for more details.  Hope to see you there!

Parents you've been challenged!

An anonymous donor is matching new donations for the next 2 weeks up to $500. They want all the parents Downtown to make a donation towards the playground in lieu of paying to build one in their own backyard. This is a great opportunity to double your contribution to our neighborhood. We are only $2000 and 3 weeks away from ordering the playground equipment. Your children will thank you!
