Our Website We are Friends of Gatison Park, a community organization comprised of neighborhood volunteers that donate our time and money to developing and celebrating our urban neighborhood park. In our first six months we have replaced 8 park benches, painted a swingset, painted two basket ball hoops, built a picnic table, planted 200 flower bulbs, had the city to install electric power hook ups, had a Harvest Festival and Winter Tree lighting festival. We love collaborating with existing businesses and organizations to bring the community together to heal and celebrate this park. We are working with our local Ansonia Nature Center to create a butterfly garden and enhance the natural environment so that an outdoor classroom can be conducted in the park for children to explore nature in their neighborhood. The money we raise for this campaign will be combined with our volunteer efforts to build a butterfly garden, build several birdhouses, and to beautify and attract wildlife to the park for the kids to explore. This urban park serves as the primary play space for about 150 neighborhood kids, who have been involved in every step of revitalizing this park, and believe me when I tell you that seeing them enjoy the safety and wonder of the park is worth any donation. We very much appreciate any support you can provide to this community development initiative.
