Who are we?

Friends of Monarch Park is a community based group that is interested in improving the green space, cultural and recreational activities of Monarch Park.  We are a diverse group of volunteers who are willing to share new ideas, respect other points of view and participate in a collaborative process to create a vibrant community park.

What is our mission?

We believe that a lively, safe community is created through many small networks of friendships.  The park allows people from all walks of life to spontaneously cross paths and strike up a conversation.  In order to bring people together, we want to support a wide variety of park activities and help contribute to the maintenance and improvement of the park’s facilities. We also believe it’s important to ensure that the park will be a vibrant, healthy public green space for decades to come.  We want to take care of the existing natural environment and gradually improve it over time. We aim to be as representative as possible and a credible voice for the community on park matters.  Because we have a stake in our community, we want to share our vision with Parks, Forestry and Recreation and our Councillor.

How can you participate?

We are always open to new members. Please contact us at friends.monarchpark@yahoo.ca to join.  We also welcome new members to the Friends of Monarch Park steering committee. If you’re interested in actively participating and helping to make the park a better place for everyone in our community, we would love to hear from you.
