1948 Plans for Center Street Park

1948 Plans for Center Street Park

Friends of Center Street Park (FOCSP) is a community organization with a mission to improve Center Street Park and create a gathering place for the entire community to enjoy. Founded in 2014 by a group of neighborhood residents, FOCSP works with public and private stakeholders to increase resources for the park, facilitate usage of the park, and advocate on behalf of the park and neighborhood residents. We partner closely with the Milwaukee County Parks Department.

We are formally affiliated with The Park People of Milwaukee County. The Park People provides FOSCP with fiscal sponsorship, which gives us 501(c)3 nonprofit status and helps support quality organizational governance. FOCSP's Board of Directors helps coordinate our work and and drive our mission.
