‘FRIENDS of R PARK’ is a group of enthusiasts who value nature as a community gathering place that is worth protecting. Comprised of families, nonprofits, foundations, and companies our FRIENDS make and keep Rendezvous Park great.

It was generous community partners who protected the 40 acre gravel-pit in perpetuity, ensuring its public access and added benefits to wildlife. Now, owned and stewarded by a nonprofit, R Park relies on donations, which have empowered us to reclaim over 14 acres of the desolate gravel pit into wildlife habitat and to host more than 5,000 visitors this summer.

DonateNowOur FRIENDS receive many benefits including invitations to special events.We invite you to become a FRIEND of R PARK to keep the park free of charge, while also growing and deepening its usage. It’s the first of its kind — a park for the community, shaped by the community, and supported by the community.
