You Can Help Us Do More to Improve the Park

Thanks to you, Titanic Memorial Park and our Friends group had a great year! Please consider a tax-deductible donation to help us continue to restore this gem on the Washington Channel.

You probably remember how the Park looked before we all came together as Friends of the Titanic Memorial Park— crumbling tiles, overgrown, rotting benches…hardly a welcoming place for our community and visitors to enjoy.

Just look at what the National Park Service and the Friends have accomplished with your support this year:

  • Restored the tiles in one entire play area, with plans to complete the other next Spring
  • Pruned back the North Azalea Bed, re-establishing the view to the water as originally envisioned
  • Beautified and maintained the Park—painted benches, cleaned up trash, and planted annuals and bulbs

We’re proud of our progress, and we still have a lot of work to do. Working with NPS, we are developing exciting plans for even larger restoration projects, including:

  • Plant up to 100 trees that were part of the historic design
  • Restore the garden beds and improve native habitat
  • Restore water service to maintain the landscape
  • Provide signage for the Park

To make these plans a reality, we are revving up our fundraising. We need at least 50 donors to chip in by year-end so we can order spring supplies and show potential grantors that our community is invested. As a supporter, you understand the important role the Friends play in restoring this gem and keeping it shipshape.  

Will you make a generous year-end gift today so we can take the next steps?
