Most people believe that city tax dollars pay for the upkeep of the gardens and grounds in Elizabeth Park. The Conservancy raises private money to pay for the staff, supplies, and support services needed to maintain the park.
Each year, the Elizabeth Park Conservancy makes the news about our work in the maintenance, restoration, and preservation of Elizabeth Park. We can do extraordinary work because your generosity makes our efforts possible. Your gift truly makes a difference.
With your generous support, the Conservancy can keep the park a beautiful place with its many gardens, greenhouses, walks and trails and lawns, for today and future generations. For a list of our past improvements to the park, a list of our accomplishments is under the tab Conservancy.
Our routine garden maintenance and staff, summer gardeners and contractors, replacement plantings, and supply costs are around $200,000 a year.
Your gift helps us make the park the best it can be.
