The friends of Himmel Park coalesced in the fall of 2014 out of concern for the park’s declining natural landscape and man-made infrastructure. Over the past few years, our group has worked to improve many aspects of this wonderful park.
Current “Friends of Himmel” Projects
Fundraising for a new ramada to be built in the middle of the new playground area on the west side of the park (currently under construction and to be completed fall 2018). This ramada will provide shade over picnic tables in the playground area. ($20,000)
Replacing lost trees with native ones, to give park-goers more shade and birds more habitat. Repair old sprinkler systems so that all trees can be better sustained. ($700.00-$4,000.00)
