All of us at FGPC recognize the value that Fort Greene Park provides our neighborhood. As a meeting place, a space to relax, and important natural resource, we benefit from the park in ways as incredible and diverse as the community around it. We know that high-quality, free public programming plays a key role in strengthening that community, and bringing people together. Our programs are the foundation of FGPC’s work, and provide invaluable opportunities for people from all walks of life to connect with the park’s landscape, Fort Greene’s history, local culture, and one another.
In 2018, FGPC set a personal best for number of events produced—combined, almost 180 free programs and volunteer events, serving over 25,000 individuals. Reflecting on 2018’s successes, and the ways FGPC has grown in the last twelve months, we want to highlight some of the brightest moments, and the partnerships that made them possible.
