Party in the Park

We are so proud to have thrown the (self-declared) best party of 2023. 

The Party in the Park exceeded our expectations in every way.

Find more party pics on our Events page!

Adirondack Chairs & Picnic Tables

If you build it they will come... and relax! After lots of hammering, painting, drying, gluing and yelling at the instruction manuals, FSRP built and added some super comfy, wooden Adirondack chairs and wooden picnic tables to the park. Please be kind to them!


We hope they're increasing your enjoyment of the Park!

Markward Plaza Renovations

We had a wonderful time celebrating the re-opening of Markward Plaza! We hope you enjoyed the live music and chatting with our board members about the revised master plan.

Basketball Backboards and Rims

Gone are the days of perpetually broken rims. Thanks to the generous donations from the community and local businesses, FSRP was able to match the funds we raised and replace our basketball hoops with professional grade equipment. We are so proud to make this happen for the community.
