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!


We are looking to add more playdates in Lucas Park. Let us know what dates and times work for you. Email us your suggestions.

Fitness Equipment Now Open!

I'd like to start off by thanking our wonderful volunteers who put in a very long day today getting the park cleaned up and the fitness equipment ready for use. Yes, the fitness equipment is now open for use! Please use the north east entrance to the park and pardon our mess. Grass seed will be planted this fall. Information about free fitness classes and monthly park clean ups will be coming soon.


 Prize to whoever can do the most pull ups :)

Installation Complete

Installation of the fitness equipment is complete!  Join us Saturday June 22 at 8:00am to help us clean up the park and prepare for the opening of the west side and the new fitness equipment.

Take a good look at these "before" pictures. After this week we should have our new fitness equipment installed and shortly ready for use!
(Grass seed to be installed later this Fall)


Park Work(out) Day

We are quickly approaching the fitness equipment build date and there is still some prep work to be done. Please come give us a hand on Saturday June 8th and 8:00am so we don't have to delay installation. Think of it as a free workout!

Please RSVP at so we are sure to have enough gloves and tools for everyone.


Blondie's Results

Last night we had a great turnout for the Blondie's Neighbors' Night Out.  Thank you to everyone who made it out and a big thank you to Blondie's for your very generous donation.  We were able to raise $500 which put us over our fitness equipment fundraising goal!  Look for work to be continuing in the park in preparation for the fitness equipment with the install coming mid June.  We hope to have it open and ready for your use by the end of June, weather permitting.
