The Friends of Congress Square Park have been organizing and promoting events and amenities in the much maligned park. Since May 2014 they claim over 9000 visitors came to the park to enjoy over thirty-three events and the amenities provided by the Friends group–including chairs, tables, planters and sun umbrellas.
The group is ramping up a membership drive to help make this year’s event season a success. Annual membership costs between $10 and $1000. Memberships are for one year and are tax-deductible.
