Evergreen Recreation & Park Foundation

The foundation was established in 1989 by the Evergreen Park & Recreation District’s Board of Directors. It was dormant for a number of years. But in 2007 the new District Board of Directors regenerated the Foundation for the purpose of alternative fund raising for the District.
Center For The Arts Evergreen

Center for the Arts Evergreen

In 1974 Evergreen area art enthusiasts formed and incorporated the Evergreen Arts Council as they pursed a plan to build a visual arts/community center. Their intention was to provide mountain area residents with a place to acquire high quality art instruction, view a wide variety of art exhibitions and engage in art activities. In November 2003 that building became a reality with the lease of a 3,500 square foot facility in Buchanan Park partnering with the Evergreen Park & Recreation District.
