The Friends of High School Park is a non-profit volunteer organization whose mission is to create, manage and preserve a viable 11-acre native ecosystem in High School Park for the enjoyment of the community, in cooperation with Cheltenham Township. We are dedicated to inspiring the community to connect with others and the natural environment through service and learning connected with the park.
Our Relationship with Cheltenham Township
The restoration and stewardship of High School Park is done in cooperation with Cheltenham Township. Township officials and staff have been supportive of our native plant restoration efforts and have worked with FHSP to acquire state and county funding for some of our endeavors, including the development of the restoration plan. Township workers are responsible for such maintenance tasks at the park as mowing, delivering woodchips, and picking up the trash. But by mobilizing the community, FHSP provides much of the direction, funding, and people power needed to make High School Park a unique natural refuge in Cheltenham Township.
FHSP depends on its members and volunteers to support the restoration and stewardship of High School Park. Become a member and receive e-mails and newsletters about the park and our programs. Find out more about volunteering at the park.
