The Friends of Noyes Park (FoNP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created to ensure a beautiful and well-maintained community space for all to enjoy. The park includes a pavilion for community events, children's play area, exercise equipment, an artificial turf field, a community garden, and a picnic area with grills and tables.
Our volunteers maintain the park in a variety of different ways. We manage the community garden, and hold monthly cleanup events the second Saturday of every month from April through October. We also work with area businesses and organizations, such as Noyes Elementary School and the Boy Scouts to provide educational opportunities within the park.
