Take Down the Walls Campaign

On December 4th, we received a letter from Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) Commissioner Jim Montgomery that they have approved our application for matching funds to remove the two stone barrier walls from the 1960s.

This represents Phase One of construction for our significantly renovated park. We hope to be able to repurpose some of the granite from these walls for other features in the park.

But We Need Your Help!

DCR’s total budget for this project is $208,700. The Charlesgate Alliance will pay for $104,350. We have $54,350 in our current funds which we would like to allocate for this project. Our goal is to raise the remaining $50,000 by the end of 2020.

Please make a tax-deductible year end gift for this exciting groundbreaking part of our project c/o the Emerald Necklace Conservancy.

So far we have raised $16,000 towards our $50,000 target! That’s 32% of the total!
