About Us

About Friends of the Park

Friends of the Park is a 501C3 subsidiary of Redwood Area Communities Foundation. The purpose as this entity is to assist with raising funds for the purpose of maintaining the beauty of Ramsey Park & supporting continual improvements.

We work to gather funds through donations, grants, memberships, & fundraising events so we can help maintain & improve Ramsey Park for generations to come. 

We also strive to promote every unique aspect our park has to offer to both Redwood Falls residents as well as visitors. We want others to learn about how Ramsey Park has shaped our community’s history & how it can bridge to the future. Follow us on Facebook & Instagram to see current projects & events happening in the park.

Our Partners

The Friends of the Park organization partners directly with the City of Redwood Falls to make many plans & projects become a reality in Ramsey Park. However, Friends of the Park is set up as an independent organization with a nine-member board.

Our Board

The board also welcomes individuals who have a passion for Ramsey Park to become committee members & help with various aspects of our events & planning. If you are interested in becoming a team member or volunteer, please contact us.
