Our mission is to foster community participation and encourage exploration of Bald Mountain Recreation Area’s unique resources. The group is always accepting new members. Friends of Bald Mountain Recreation Area is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
Friends of Bald Mountain Recreation has been active since 2015. We host several events in the park, including an Earth Day Clean Park Clean Up, a Scavenger Hike, summer picnics, & a Halloween event. We secured a concessions contract with the park and have been operating the concession and boat rentals since 2016. Our current project is the park's upcoming 36 hole disc golf course; the first 9 holes are expected are expected to open in the summer of 2018.
The group was originally formed in the 1990's and was very involved in nature programming at the park. The group became dormant in the early 2000's, until several area residents expressed interest in reforming the group in 2015. The Friends' revitalization was a joint effort between park staff, founding members and new members that comprise the current board.
