Make a Difference
With your help, everything you loved as a child, baseball on hot summer days, running barefoot through the park, playing basketball or even learning to dance is assured to be available to all of us. Simply put, providing the kinds of parks, recreation facilities, and programs that the people of Bowling Green want the most often cost more than the city can afford. This is why the Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Foundation needs your help. Your dollars go towards enhancing these open spaces, facilities and programs and, in turn, help build a stronger community.
