In support of the Friends of the Public Garden, the Young Friends has come together to raise goodwill and funds to assist with the work of preserving and enhancing Boston’s first public parks – the Boston Common, Public Garden, and Commonwealth Avenue Mall. Through festive social events, the Young Friends engages with their co-workers, neighbors, and compatriots, getting one another involved and sharing enthusiasm for the betterment of the parks.

The Young Friends is always eagerly looking for new, young, passionate members to join in our efforts. We, like many young members groups, define “young” somewhat loosely as we have the occasional attendee that is “young at heart.” Primarily we consider ourselves to be in the Under 40 designation. We plan events ranging from celebratory parties and fundraising social events all centered around fun, engaging, and neighborly good times.

A Young Friends membership is $25 for one year. Young Friends receive our newsletters, email updates, and invitations to special Young Friends events and programs. 

Membership gifts to Friends of the Public Garden are fully tax-deductible.
