Our mission is to maintain and restore horticulture in the five historic parks of Oak Cliff,

 to provide educational and social activities that promote the love of gardening, to advocate for conservation and a greater appreciation of the environment,

 and to back public policies that support our goals.

Here you will find a wealth of information about the history of the parks in our area as well as our volunteer activities supporting the restoration of the horticulture 

and the protection of the WPA architecture within our five historic parks.

Please check our calendar for information about our weekly activities supporting this mission.
We hope you will graciously consider becoming a valued member of the Friends of Oak Cliff Parks.

Thank you for visiting!
