Volunteers make a difference

Thanks to neighbors of Pope Park North for taking care and adding to our flower garden.


The Friends of Pope Park, the Pope Hartford Designated Fund, and KNOX are partnering to create a community garden in the Bankside Grove area of Pope Park.  The garden will be  on the west side of Bankside Grove bordered by Park Terrace and Park Street.  Since the weather has been wet we are still developing the area, but you can sign up now for a garden plot.

Sign up to garden in Pope Park!

The Plan for Bankside Grove

We have a new plan for the Bankside Grove area of the park that was developed  working with neighbors and friends of the park .  It offers the opportunity  over time for new walkways, seating areas, activity areas and renewal of the landscape, and importantly, an expanded and unified Pope Park.
