THE FRIENDS

Mission

The Friends of Ringgold Park is a group of enthusiastic, responsible volunteers dedicated to the preserving the park and the contribution it makes to the community. Working in conjunction with the Boston Parks & Recreation Department, the Friends maintain the park’s plant and irrigation systems; host regular community events, such as our annual Halloween Party; and advocate for long-term improvements to the park. We are a fiscally sound, non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. We invite you to enjoy this special spot in the city all year long.
