Friends of William Byrd Park

Friends of William Byrd Park are a group of citizen volunteers whose goal is to preserve and protect, restore and improve, and encourage responsible use of the William Byrd Park. The organization also acts in an advisory capacity to the City of Richmond’s Department of Recreation and Parks in its administration of the park. Friends of William Byrd Park are dedicated to keeping William Byrd Park an attractive destination for people from all around the Richmond metropolitan area. Several times a year Friends of William Byrd Park have Prune & Groom events that are designed to enhance an area of the park or to remedy some problem that has come to their attention. Typical projects are tree planting, light pruning, ivy remediation, sucker removal, mulching, and weeding. Your donation to the Friends of William Byrd Park goes towards community events, maintenance + upkeep, and preserving the history of William Byrd Park.
