Friends of Oakbourne
The Friends of Oakbourne (FoO) a 501(c)3 charitable organization, is a volunteer group, separate from Westtown Township, governed by a Board of Directors. FoO’s mission is to assist Westtown Township in caring for, improving, and enhancing Westtown’s Oakbourne Park. Tax deductible donations to “The Friends of Oakbourne Fund” are welcome. These funds may be used by FoO for various park improvement projects such as tree and shrub plantings, park benches, garden construction, invasive plant control, and other worthy projects.
Oakbourne Park, consisting or 148 acres, is the gem of Westtown Township, and is the primary focal point and recreational resource in the Township. The park contains wooded walking trails, an arboretum area, gardens, sport fields, and the historical and architecturally unique Oakbourne Mansion and Water Tower.
The “Friends” have established a tree dedication program to replace dead or dying specimen trees in the park arboretum, and to introduce new trees and shrubs into other areas of the park. Donations are welcomed from individuals for dedicated memorial trees and benches to be planted or placed in specific areas of the park or arboretum. The program is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of Oakbourne Park while honoring a loved one or to commemorating an important occasion.
If you would like to join the Friends of Oakbourne, volunteer for work in the park, or receive information about The Friends of Oakbourne or the Tree/Bench Dedication Program, then please contact Tom Bare (firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-399-1572).
