The nonprofit organization is charged with preserving, promoting and enhancing the resources of the park.

Money raised Saturday will directly benefit the park.

Tickets to participate in activities will cost 25 cents.

Friends Fest, which also includes food and entertainment, will be held outdoors near the playground, pool and recreation hall.
