Dear Friends and Neighbors,

September 2021 marked 10 years since Georgetown Waterfront Park was completed. During this past decade, hundreds of thousands of people have enjoyed our beautiful waterfront park at the city’s edge.

Friends of Georgetown Waterfront Park (FOGWP) began working with the National Park Service in 1997 to build the Park. Since the Park was completed, FOGWP has continued to work with NPS to preserve and improve the park for the many walkers, joggers, bikers, fountain-splashers, and others who enjoy it throughout the year. Your contributions to FOGWP make these efforts possible. With your help, in 2021:

  • We installed a multi-unit bird house for Purple Martins, and smaller bird houses for Bluebirds and Carolina Wrens, to help attract a wider variety of birds to the waterfront.
  • We are replacing the badly faded historical etchings at the overlooks with more durable historical images, and will install the first of these this fall.
  • We are working with the Nature Sacred foundation on a series of programs to encourage visitors to use the labyrinth in the park for contemplation and healing, and for connecting with nature.
  • We continue to monitor C. Water’s Clean Rivers Storm Water/Sewer Separator Project as it comes to Georgetown, to minimize any construction impacts on the park.
  • We are collaborating with the National Park Service to improve signage in the park for bikers and pedestrians, and to provide cultural and historical information about the park.
  • We regularly monitor landscaping in the park to ensure that it is well-maintained, and we help pay for special plantings and other enhancements.

FOGWP is an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff. We use nearly every dollar we raise to help maintain and improve the Park. We hope you will join us in supporting Georgetown Waterfront Park by contributing to our annual appeal. You can donate via credit card by selecting the “Donate” tab on FOGWP’s secure website: www.georgetownwaterfrontpark.org. If you would prefer to donate by check, please mail your donation to us in the enclosed envelope. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Thank you for your generosity and we look forward to seeing you in the park sometime soon.

Sincerely yours,
