​​​Story Walk

A StoryWalk is a project that places an illustrated children’s book, taken apart and displayed page by page, along a walking route in your community. The Friends of Mitchell Park supported the Story Walk currently on display in Mitchell Park, We've Got the Whole World in our Hands (Tenemos el Mundo entero en las Manos) by Rafael López.

Other Events We Support In 2022


January saw our signature Winter event, Free Skate Sunday. Skaters 17 and younger enjoyed a free day of skating! You can read about it and see a video in this article by Lisa Finn on the North Fork Patch here.


As we have for many years, we were one of the contributors to Dances In The Park, brought to you by the Village of Greenport. Get more information here.


We again contributed to Northeast Stage's production of Shakespeare in the Park (coming to Mitchell Park in August). Get more information here.


In July, Floyd Memorial Library brought a Brady Rymer concert to Mitchell Park, with help from the Friends of MItchell Park.

Mitchell Park functions all year as a gathering place, a venue for maritime and other Village events, and a place of  entertainment, relaxation  & education for visitors of every age.   It is truly the heart of the Village.

With this awareness as motivation, The Friends of Mitchell Park have a mission to promote the well-being of the Park, either through the organization’s own educational, artistic, environmental and historic efforts, or by its support through grants, gifts, bequests or other means to those who initiate projects that have similar goals.

Features of the park include:
- Summer stage and dance floor

- Working Carousel
- Seasonal ice-skating rink

- Working Marina                      
- Sandy beach

- Seasonal mist and sprinkler garden
- Observation deck and boardwalk

- Camera Obscura

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

​​​Tai Chi 2022

We are back again this year, with Tai Chi in the Park for May - October. Join our leader, Denise Gillies, for an hour of Tai Chi in Mitchell Park, for the seventh year of our signature summer event.


We need the weather to cooperate with us, rain will cancel the event. We will try to keep this page updated with last-minute cancellations if that happens. There are other circumstances that cause cancellations, when we know in advance of such cancellations they will be posted earlier.
