Friends Of Edgewood Park

2019 Greenspace Report

The Friends of Edgewood Park and its Green Team, under the strong leadership of Stephanie Fitzgerald, are ardent stewards of spaces that make the park an inviting and enjoyable space. Through restoring the old promenade along Edgewood Avenue, tidying the garden at the midbridge, and clearing trails of knotweed, they spent the past two months rallying around projects that bring both aesthetic and ecosystem benefits. This summer's projects will continue into fall, as the group meets weekly year-round.
