About the Batavia Parks Foundation
Batavia Parks Foundation was incorporated in 2004 as a 501(c)3 organization as a means of enhancing the quality of life in the Batavia community through stewardship for open space, parks, facilities, cultural activities, and recreational programs. Among our objectives is to partner with other community organizations towards common projects.
Revenue sources are solely from donations, grants, and bequests. Through a variety of fund-raising efforts, we have been able to pursue our goals. Besides planning enhancements to local parks, we have provided scholarships to needy families allowing them to participate in recreational and cultural programs.
Since its’ inception, the Parks Foundation has undertaken and completed many successful projects, including the Batavia Park District Leisureship Program (2005-current) providing class scholarships to deserving individuals, Memorial Program (2005-current); the Peg Bond Center Pavilion (Bandshell) Project (2009-2010), SpaceNet at Engstrom Park (2010), Disc Golf Course at West Main (2012-2013) and the Batavia Riverwalk Boardwalk Project (2014).
