About The Esplanade Association’s Friend Council
The Esplanade Association’s Friends Council is a group for anyone who is interested in becoming more involved with The Friends Council aims to support the mission of The Esplanade Association through volunteerism, event support, and park stewardship. While we encourage members to attend our events, there is no set time or monetary commitment to join the Friends Council. It is a great way to network, give back to the community, and have fun.
Council Goals & Activities
Council members help the Association plan and market fundraising events, participate in clean-up days on the Esplanade, provide support for our summer programs, and attend tours at the park to become up-to-date on our current projects. Members gather together to plan our winter fundraiser event, summer event (Dock Party), and a fall event (the Night Owl portion of our Moon Dance Gala).
For more information on our past events, please click here. If interested, Council members may also volunteer to help with our summer programming, by attending our Healthy, Fit & Fun classes in the park, such as Zumba and yoga, and assisting with registration at these programs.
