Friends of Marcellus Park

Friends of Marcellus Park is an organization that was formed after the Town of Marcellus accepted the park from Onondaga County. Its mission statement is to enhance and preserve the beauty, service and use of Marcellus Park. Over the years the Friends of Marcellus Park have been instrumental planning for the park’s future and with fundraising at Olde Home Days, Summer Concert series, Marcellus/Skaneateles Art Show and Marcellus Fall Festival.

Since its formation, The Friends of Marcellus Park have worked hand in hand with the Town of Marcellus Parks and Recreation Department to meet the needs of the park.

Over the past years, the Friends have helped in upgrades to Marcellus Park such as the new playground,  bringing more electricity to the pavilions, adding the playground pavilion, replacing trees, addition of a new concession stand and storage building, and most recently improvements to the Welcome Center.

Leave your Mark in the Park

Friends of Marcellus Park offer a way to leave your Mark in the Park. With an engraved brick you may pay tribute to a family member, your name or leave a message for future generations. Each brick is 4” x 8” and offers 2 lines of 15 characters each.  All bricks will be laid in the sidewalk that leads to the new playground area. For an original and unique gift, purchase a brick for your loved ones for all special occasions. Gift certificates can be issued for your gift giving.

Plant your Roots programs offer individuals the opportunity to plant trees as living memorials within the park. For information contact the park office at 673-3227.

Playground Project

In 2006 the Friends sponsored a fundraiser to have a new playground installed in the park. The playground installation has been completed and is now open to the public. View more playground photos here
