Westerner Park

As a not-for-profit organization, so much of what we do relies upon the hard work and generosity of our volunteers.

Whether it's our Board of Directors, volunteer committees, or the people on the ground making each event happen, we wouldn't be anywhere without them. Westerner Park volunteers come from a variety of ages and backgrounds, and some have been with us for over thirty years! It takes over 200 volunteers working on approximately 21 committees to plan and organize Westerner Park produced events, so an extra set of hands is always welcome.

Volunteer opportunities at Westerner Park include becoming a board member, shareholder, committee volunteer or event volunteer.

We will be hosting an open house on Tuesday October 15, 2019. Follow the link below to learn more.
