The Friends of Williamston Parks is a volunteer community group working to enhance the quality of life of Williamston area residents by funding, planning and implementing local park improvement efforts. Through recreation opportunities and encounters with nature, we believe Williamston area parks are vital to the community’s character, an asset to economic development and beneficial to people of all ages.
The group's current efforts focus on raising funds for a new playground at Volunteers Community Park on the corner of Putnam and School streets next to The Commons. Four elements are planned: a play structure, four swings, a Ten Spin that allows one to stand or sit while spinning, and a Tri Trotter which provides three children the opportunity to bounce at the same time.
