The Friends of Tarrywile Park have recently reorganized and we're welcoming new members. The Friends work with the Tarrywile Park Authority to promote community use and awareness of the Park. We conduct activities to solicit gifts of materials, equipment, exhibits, funds, endowments and bequests for the Park. As a tax-free, fundraising organization of volunteers, we take an active role in the historic preservation, restoration and enhancement of the Parks' buildings and grounds.
