one park.

The Pawling Community Foundation is embarking on a master plan to improve Lakeside and Murrow Parks. The first phase is the renovation of the Great Lawn at Lakeside Park. Join us in supporting the renovation of the Great Lawn at Lakeside by making a gift to the One Community. One Park. campaign. You can turn generosity into impact by investing in Pawling’s parkland that will benefit generations to come.

One Community. One Park. is a multi-year initiative. The cost of the first phase (Great Lawn)  is estimated to be $480,000, with the budget for all improvements totaling a little more than $2 million.

our track record speaks for itself

SInce its inception in March 1992, PCF has supported local organizations and Village and Town governments in the area of the arts, cultural activities, tourism, and recreation. Our last major projet was the completion of the Village Green, for which we raised 1.5 million from the community and additional grants. The green is enjoyed by many, and hosts the farmers market from June – September as well as the arts and crafts festival.
