Bushnell Park has become an especially important salvation to many as a safe urban oasis for natural social distancing for all the outdoor activities we all need right now. Visitors thrive in our only downtown Park every day – walking, biking, sitting, running, dog walking, doing yoga, eating, having a business meeting, and more; the Park fills many needs for fresh air and healthy activities.

Every facet of our lives has been impacted by the pandemic. The non-profit sector is especially hard hit and we know there are many worthy causes vying for your support. The Bushnell Park Foundation is no exception and we need your help.

The health and safety of our community forced us to cancel fundraisers and events in the Park this year, leaving us with revenue losses of more than $40,000. Add to that, the devastation of Tropical Storm Isaias uprooted a 100-year-old Silver Linden tree and devastated many other trees and limbs large and small. The clean-up, restoration, and replanting amount to large, unanticipated budget expenses.

Now more than ever, friends like you can help keep the Park vital, the treescape green, and our downtown neighborhood strong. Please donate now, whatever amount you can.
