The Elizabeth Park Conservancy
mourns the passing of one of our founders, Lina Wagner,
on October 16, 2016.
Lina Wagner is pictured directly above, second from the left, at the founding ceremony of the Elizabeth Park Conservancy (formerly, the Friends of Elizabeth Park) on June 22, 1977.
The organization rescued the historic Rose Garden at Elizabeth Park from near-certain destruction in 1977 when municipal funds for its care ran out, and has since cared for the gardens & grounds at Elizabeth Park for almost 40 years.
Lina was a guiding force of this organization for many years, and she was a great gardener. She was also instrumental in the reconstruction of the Elizabeth Park Perennial Garden, and she is pictured at top in this garden.
Lina Wagner was a great friend of Elizabeth Park, and she will be missed.
Without volunteers, the Conservancy would not be able to maintain the beautiful gardens and grounds of Elizabeth Park.
Our volunteers include people of all ages and backgrounds who want to support the park and give back to their community.
Join our team, make new friends, and take time to smell the roses!
