The Friends of Fonticello Park is actively working with the City of Richmond through the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Community Facilities to make improvements to the park that are aligned with the needs and vision of the community.

The Fonticello Food Forest, the park’s longest standing park project, was established in 2015 by Laney Sullivan and Jameson Price. In response to the pandemic in 2020, they started offering a weekly Farm Stand from noon to three. Additionally, neighbors have been working to establish an off leash dog park, a native meadow, and to reopen the spring.
