GET READY FOR FREE SKATE SUNDAYS 2023
We are teaming up with Greenport Village again to offer free skating in the Mitchell Park rink to kids ages 17 and younger. Unfortunately it's been too warm for skating so far, let's hope for a cold spell so there can be skating on Sunday, February 5, 2023.
Summary Of Events We Supported In 2022
January 2022 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 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.
The Friends of Mitchell Park supported the Story Walk that was on display in Mitchell Park in July, We've Got the Whole World in our Hands (Tenemos el Mundo entero en las Manos) by Rafael López. 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.
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
