Friends of Center Park 

Center Park at 42 Lowell Street in Carlisle, Massachusetts is a 0.6-acre public park owned and administered by the Town of Carlisle. The park was developed in the years following 2006 using a combination of donated and town funds; it was professionally designed and maintained until December 2018. That story is preserved at centerparkcarlislema.org

In March 2019, the Select Board approved a plan to form a nonprofit corporation known as the Friends of Center Park (FOCP) to manage and maintain the park landscape. With gardening classes supervised by certified volunteers from the Massachusetts Master Gardeners Association (MMGA) and additional volunteer maintenance of the flower beds, the mowing and tree services are provided by the Carlisle Department of Public Works. The FOCP corporation was established in December 2019 and awarded 501(c)(3) nonprofit status in March 2020.
