A quick rundown the group's mission is below. They are always looking for more community-minded folks to join their group, so stop by tonight's meeting!
Friends of the Oval is a volunteer-led collection of neighbors who care about and delight in their park. Membership is open to anyone and everyone who wants to preserve and improve the Williamsbridge Oval as a vital community resource for the thousands of adults, children and elderly who enjoy the park each week.
Friends of the Williamsbridge Oval is committed to using people power to assist the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation in properly maintaining and supporting our park. As neighbors who love the Oval and our neighborhood, we work together with community residents, elected officials and neighborhood organizations to identify needs in the park, monitor repairs and renovations and sponsor activities to foster community connectedness.
Friends of the Williamsbridge Oval is affiliated with the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition, a thirty year old activist organization committed to empowerment and social justice for Bronx residents. Friends of the Oval draws on the rich cultural and ethnic diversity of the Norwood neighborhood and needs the involvement of all our neighbors.
