The Friends is a non-profit organization created over 30 years ago in 1991 to serve as a steward of the parkways in Folsom. Over the years the Friends has provided assistance in determining areas to be included in the parkway system, financial assistance to improve the parkway, and worked with over 2,000 volunteers planting trees, building bridges, removing invasive plants, and other beautification efforts. ( FOFP Bylaws )
Our mission is to:
- make the citizens of Folsom aware of the parkways,
- raise funds for parkway development,
- work to educate the community on parkway issues,
- work to influence development proposals to the benefit of the parkways,
- work to identify areas of Folsom worthy of inclusion in the parkway system.
The Friends encourage our members to connect to the parkway in many different ways; as an advocate, a volunteer, a mile steward, member recruiter, a sponsor, and/or a donor.
With the development of the area of Folsom south of US 50, the parkways there really need your help to ensure the parkways in Folsom continue to be the envy of the nation.
