Where We’ve Been

Mary Ann Brewer was one of the early proponents of the Foundation and would have been on the Board had she not passed. Through her estate she helped get the Foundation off the ground with a generous donation.

Where We Are

Made in the Shade

“Made in the Shade” is a fundraiser for Shade Structures at the Oak Island Splash Pad, and a soon-to-be installed playground at Middleton Park.

Drinking Fountain

Help the foundation raise funds to purchase a water-fountain for Veteran’s Park. Let’s keep everyone visiting the park, including our furry friends, cool!

Where We Are

Park Bench, Swing or Picnic Table

Leave a lasting memento to a loved one in an Oak Island Park.  Either a park bench, a swing or even a picnic table. The Foundation will purchase and install with a commemorative plaque. 

beach wheelchairs

Help purchase beach wheelchairs that are available at no cost to the user, and available through the Recreation Center year round.


Get involved with the Oak Island Friends of Parks Foundation by becoming a volunteer.  Donating your time and efforts will lead to the implementation of new programs and improvements to our parks

In the event the goal is reached for a project, any additional monies will be used at the discretion of the board.

Where We're Going

Where else are we going?  The answer to that is, in part, up to you and everyone who donates to the Friends of Parks Foundation.  As we grow, we’ll develop a “Wish List” based on public input and your suggestions to help us help make our parks and lives even better.

We want to hear from you!
