Who are We?
I short, we are people like you:
- Residents who live within a five minute walk from the park, and as Maine’s highest density of population there are more than 10,000 of us.
- Businesses on the Congress Street corridor who understand that a vibrant park is good for business.
- Visitors for near and far who find the open spot on the Congress Street ‘canyon’ a respite and place to rest your feet and enjoy Portland’s bustling downtown.
If you’d like to become a friend and actively participate in our revitalization of “the Heart of the Arts district.” then we encourage you to get involved. Drop us a line and attend our monthly meetings. Please write to us at The Friends of Congress Square Park and let us know how you can participate. You may not have time to help out but want to contribute monetarily. We gladly accept donations which will go directly towards amenities, maintenance and events programming.[note: At this time ee are a Maine Non-Profit and NOT a Federal 501c3. At this time your donation would not be tax deductible. We sincerely hope this will not inhibit you from your support.]
