The Friends of Harold Parker is a non-profit organization formed to promote, support and advocate for Harold Parker State Forest.
Since incorporated in 2015, our ambitious volunteers have undertaken several projects, including a successful 100th anniversary celebration, the addition of a new informational kiosk, and a campaign to re-open the Berry Pond swimming area. (Also successful!)
Volunteers also run the popular Wednesday walking group and lead monthly guided nature hikes.
Hailing from Andover, North Andover, North Reading and beyond, on foot, on horseback and mountain bike, we represent a diverse range of park users who all want to make Harold Parker the best it can be. Please consider joining us.
