Our all-volunteer group protects and preserves our city’s “Central Park” for you. We repair the park’s unique, historic stone entries, overlooks, walls & bridges. We care for its vegetation, carrying on Gen. Palmer’s vision of a natural park for people to enjoy. We organize free musical concerts, guided bird, tree & wildflower walks and park clean-ups that provide beneficial and educational activities in our park.
Monument Valley Park is a downtown oasis that our community uses every day to run, bike, walk and play. It is key to the quality of life for many urban workers and our city’s residents. Its historic stone features and natural landscape create a unique experience for all park users. City funding is insufficient to maintain the park. Without our group’s efforts the century-old stonework would be lost forever.
Volunteers to manage & expand social media, plan events for the growing downtown residential community & nearby neighborhoods, and participate in park clean-ups. A stage for our free concerts.
Through GIVE donations & State Historical Fund grants, we have completed repairs of the park’s historical stonework costing close to $500,000 over the past 10 years.
“I cannot say enough about FMVP and the work they are doing to help restore and preserve these wonderful stone features in Monument Valley Park.” — Terry Alexander
