The Friends of Fort Totten Parks has been in existence since April 2004. No one can recall another instance of a Friends group being formed before there was a park, but the founding members believed it was important to generate community support. Being involved in the development and direction of Fort Totten Park has been a rewarding and exciting experience. We are optimistic that our involvement can influence the future of the park.
