Here is why you should get involved by donating your time and money?
Robson Park is a special place that we all love, but let’s be honest, the lack of ongoing care and maintenance over the years has really taken its toll on the Park. Many of the terraces are weed strewn and many of the paths are overgrown. Walls are sagging and falling down. Invasive plants have become dominant. It is time for us to band together as a community and clean up the park through volunteer efforts (clean up days) and by raising funds for things like benches, new plants, etc. This is why Friends of Robson was created and why we hope you get involved.
2022 Project Specifics:
If you stand at the lower yard and look up towards the Carriage House our 2022 Project encompasses beautifying the terraces that are surrounded by the path on both sides.
Funds raised will be used to clear the terraces of weeds and invasive species, put down woodchips and to also plant them with native plants that are drought tolerant and relatively low maintenance. Before planting we will need to work with the Town to install drip irrigation. In terms of access, the original paths will be cleared and park benches and picnic tables will be purchased and installed.
NOTE: All funds donated will go directly to pay for the project. In other words, nobody involved with Friends of Robson is taking a salary. We are volunteers.
