About The Friends of Mitchell Park

The Friends of Mitchell Park, a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization, was founded in 2008 to support cultural, artistic and educational events in Mitchell Park, a 4-acre green oasis on the waterfront in Greenport Village on the East End of Long Island, NY. We operate with the  cooperation and support of the Village of Greenport. Learn more about Mitchell Park. Visit the Greenport Village website.
