About Crawford Park and its Friends
Crawford Park is a 36-acre preserve located off Ridge Street in Rye Brook, New York. The Park contains an early 20th century mansion, hundreds of mature trees, an expansive lawn, a playground, a large picnic pavilion and a sunken garden.
In October of 1996, a non-profit, 501 C-3, organization called the Friends of Crawford Park was formed. Its purpose was the beautification of the park grounds, as well as preservation of the Crawford's legacy.
Working with the Rye Town Council, they have created a mile long walking path – so helpful for enjoying the park all season. They have also restored Mrs. Crawford’s sunken garden, created a sensory garden, a wild flower meadow and planted thousands of plants throughout the park.
Under the Family Tree program donations of trees may be made in memory of a loved one or in honor of some special occasion.
If you are interested in volunteering at a planting or cleanup day, or just want to learn what our organization is up to, please contact us. We'd love to hear from you.
