The Friends of Washington Market Park is led by a 20-member Board of Directors who meet monthly to plan programs and events in the park, raise funds to support new park initiatives and oversee park improvements.
If you are interested in joining the Friends, or simply volunteering at one of our events, please send an email to email@example.com. We need creative and energetic Tribeca residents to join our efforts to make Washington Market Park one of the city’s most loved green spaces.
