Friends of Roosevelt Park

The primary purpose of Friends of Roosevelt Park is to enhance the city park located at 9th Street and Roosevelt Avenue in Ames, Iowa.
Our activities include outdoor concerts, public events for all ages, community building opportunities, and avenues for charitable giving.

We did it! We have exceeded our park development fundraising goal. Park construction is ongoing through fall 2015. Thanks to all who contributed toward our success. more.
