Friends of the Williamsbridge Oval will be meeting on Thursday, July 1 at 7pm at 3274 Hull Avenue. Like other “Friends” groups connected to parks throughout New York City, the Friends of the Oval harness the energy, ideas, and power of community residents to help the NYC Parks Department improve the park.
The group is open to anyone and everyone who uses and wants to improve the Oval. Issues that group works on are driven by the interests and needs of members. In past summers, the group has organized summer fairs and events at the Oval.
Friends of the Oval have a full agenda for the meeting, including updates on the construction in the park, planning for a meeting with the new Parks Dept. staff person in charge of the Oval, and discussing ways for the group to better collaborate with Mosholu Preservation Corporation, the local police precinct, and the Parks Dept.
