Friends of Ballard Park attributes much of its success to the many volunteers who have helped the organization over the years. From the first board members to those who help us at our Earth Day Clean Ups, our organization is able to grow because of the generous support of members of the community.

At many of our events we need help setting up or monitoring the trails. Call 619.3377 if you are interested in volunteering or e-mail us at

We are always looking for interesting programming opportunities.
