GET INVOLVED WITH FRIENDS OF FRANKLIN PARKS! As a Friend, there’s a wide range of ways to get involved. Follow us on Facebook, and sign up for our quarterly Friends newsletter, full of updates on projects and news about our wonderful park system. 

We host educational programs for children, and are always looking for mentors. And be sure to join us as we get our hands dirty on volunteer projects in Franklin’s parks! Twice each year, Friends get together with the Parks staff to help clean up, beautify and improve a certain area... it’s a lot of fun and you get to see the power of dedicated people in action!
