Organization Profile

Friends of Mt. Tabor

The Friends of Mt Tabor Park (FMTP) was organized as a non-profit group in early 2000, following the major renovation of much of the infrastructure in Mt Tabor Park, i.e., the amphitheater, playground, ball court, roadway intersections, rest rooms and stabilization of the steep slopes on the east side. As of late 2004, there were approximately 100 families represented as dues paying members, approximately 40% of whom are active in the foot patrol, Saturday morning service projects, attending programs, etc.. Most live within the greater Mt Tabor neighborhood, but several live in other surrounding neighborhoods. The purpose of the Friends of Mt Tabor Park organization is to improve and/or help maintain Mt Tabor Park for the benefit of individuals, organizations and the Park Bureau; to identify and help solve problems; to participate in park planning projects. We work with the Park Bureau, the Mt Tabor Neighborhood Association and other community and park user groups to monitor park use and operation, to support effective maintenance of the park, and to help in the successful implementation of the parks goals and vision as stated in the Mt Tabor Park Master Plan.
