  • Movies in the Glen

         Join us in the park as we cozy up to watch a free movie under the stars every Saturday in August! We show a variety of movies - some action, some comedy, some for the young, some for the teens, but the one thing in common is that it's all free!

Friends of Richmond Parks Endowment Fund:

Providing your connection to nature, recreation, leisure and quality of life in our community.

The Richmond Parks and Recreation department provides for the positive development and well being of the Richmond community through the provision of parks, greenways, trails and recreational programming and facilities while working in cooperation with other service providers and partners in the community to maximize all available resources.

Our goal is to continue providing these services for many years to come. That goal can only be met if we are able to find alternative funding sources. As tax funding is shrinking, we must turn to other funding sources and donations to assure stable funding and protect the future of park systems here at home and nationwide. We must plan for the future generations and leave them with a park system that will continue to grow and provide opportunities for the as it has for all of us.

Our most popular programs - Egg Hunt, Family Fun Fest, JUKO and Little JUKO (Just Us Kids Outdoors), Outdoor Movie Series, and Celebration of Lights count on this funding as they are not covered through our regular budget. These and many other programs are in danger of being eliminated or will have to be offered on a fee basis.

One way we addressing our need for a steady stream of income is through Friends of Richmond Parks Endowment Fund through the Wayne County Foundation. This will provide an opportunity for special people to give back to their community in a way that will live on through our parks, our programs and our recreation.

Your generous gifts to the endowment can be earmarked for capital or facility improvements, programming, or other identified needs within our park system. This new endowment also allows us to accept non-traditional gifts such as gifts of life insurance and bequests. Please consider us when planning your charitable contributions.

Your kindness can make the difference in the future of our parks! Your tax deductible gift can ensure that the infrastructure of our park system is maintained, our programs continue to be free pr inexpensive and our natural green space is preserved.

We need your help to maintain our beautiful outdoor spaces...

Whether you enjoy a peaceful stroll through the park, a fun-filled day on the playground with your children or grandchildren,  round of golf, a competitive game of softball, or fishing at the reservoir, Richmond Parks Department has something for everyone.

We need your help to keep the vision of parks and recreation alive. Your benevolence will make a big difference to our efforts and your gift will benefit out community now and for generations of all ages to come.

Every gift makes a difference!
