What is Friends of Roseville Parks? We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose members raise funds for the benefit of all Roseville (Minnesota) Parks and recreation facilities. We aim to promote the development and maintenance of Roseville parks to provide recreational facilities and activities for families, children and adults.
Since its founding in 1969, Friends of Roseville Parks has raised more than $500,000 to beautify the parks of our community and make the spaces more useful, not only Roseville residents but all who come to enjoy the bounteous green spaces in our community. See below for a list highlighting some of our donations over the years.
