THE MISSION of the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation is to enhance the beauty and experience of Lakes Park.
Help us improve our park! Volunteer, donate or attend our fundraising events.
Raised fund will go towards added fitness equipment along the trails for bikers, runners and walkers, the Community Garden and Botanical Garden enhancements to add a children’s learning garden.
Join our fabulous volunteer community to support maintenance and expansion of the Lakes Park Botanic Garden, including the Fragrance Garden, the Community Garden, and the Children’s Garden.
Are you a gardener but don’t have the space for veggies? Rent one of our Community Garden beds! You will be surrounded by fellow gardeners and a beautiful park. Tools are available and beds come well amended. Rental period is one year.
