A giant THANK YOU goes out to all our volunteers!
We did it!!! Tillery Playground is open.  Come enjoy it.

Our Mission
Friends of Tillery Park is a charitable organization formed for the sole purpose of renovating and beautifying our city's historic Tillery Park. We were awarded a $25,000 matching grant by Fort Worth's Parks and Community Services Department. We must now secure the additional funds and community support needed to construct the park's new playground. Friends of Tillery Park is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Our Goals
Raise $175,000 and recruit 2,000 volunteers to build a new playground during BUILD WEEK OCTOBER 10-14, 2007. 

We exceeded our financial goals, and over 1,200 volunteers helped.  It took us a couple of extra days, but the playground opened October 21, 2007.


What is the Tillery Park project?
A community-based effort to build an extraordinary public playground that will give our children a fun, safe and creative place to play. This unique playground will be built entirely with donated funds, materials, labor and tools, all raised from local businesses, civic groups, families, individuals and available grant monies.
