Leading Our Park Into the Future

Happy Saturday Park Pals, hope you’re all having a great weekend so far! We’ll be getting together tomorrow for our weekly Sunday work party from 11am to 1pm to keep the park looking lovely for all to enjoy. Grab your rain coat and gloves and comes join us!

The Park Side Cafe

Things are moving along quickly as our neighbors wrap up the Park Side Cafe project. And we are so excited for what it’s going to mean for the neighborhood moving forward! In the coming weeks we will see new landscaping and the much anticipated food truck court coming to life as well as exciting new places to eat and enjoy in the park or on the roof overlooking the park below. Here’s a sneak peek view from the new rooftop dining area!

Join Our Leadership Team

Everything we do at the West Central Park is brought to you by the dedicated volunteers and donors who put their hearts into making this organization what it is today. And with the new year, we’re looking for some fresh fire to help with decision making and implementation at the West Central Park. If there’s things you want to see happening at the Wets Central Park, the best way to ensure them is to get involved with park leadership!

How would you like to guide and manage volunteer projects at the Park? How would you like to play a role in what movies get shown on the lawn in the summer and other seasonal events? Would you like to help guide the building of a new Gazebo stage? Or facilitate a West Central Park managed Farmer’s Market? These are just some of the exciting projects and choices that WCP Board Members and Volunteers are responsible for.

In addition to board membership, we also welcome volunteers to help with our smaller committees including arts and cultural programing, composting, landscaping, and our on the ground volunteers who maintain the park each Sunday at our organized work parties and tend the plants and garden beds.

We’re also in search of a part-time volunteer bookkeeper to help manage our finances this year. The bookkeeper will work along with the Treasurer to perform data entry and process income and expenses for the park. The position would only require a few hours each month but would be an incredibly valuable part of our team! If this is a skill you would like to donate, please consider joining our team!
