About

A new and inviting green space and center for community life.

Friends of Ely Park is a volunteer-based, not for profit organization working to to revitalize and protect the city of Lambertville’s only dedicated green space.

Healthy cities need parks. By creating a venue where people can connect through shared activities, become more involved and engaged with others, we increase the “social capital” of our community.

Enhancing Ely Memorial Park will improve quality of life by providing a public space that brings together our diverse populations for recreation. The project will also improve the safety of the Route 29 streetscape, the main transportation corridor through the city, for the benefit of all.
