Mission Statement

The mission of the citizen volunteers of Oshtemo Friends of the Parks is to promote the expanded stewardship and preservation of natural features within the community, to further the development and maintenance of existing and future parks in keeping with adopted park plans, and to effectively advocate Township parks as community resources for all to enjoy.

Where does the Oshtemo Friends of the Parks Fit into the Township Structure?

The group was created by the Township Board of Trustees by resolution recognizing the need to use the volunteerism and philanthropy of residents and businesses to further the quality of life in the township via parks.

Enriching the Oshtemo Community Park Experience

Every town needs parks. Public green spaces are crucial to a community’s health, providing a location for recreational activities, a family get-together, or simply a peaceful walk in the woods. With that in mind, Oshtemo Friends of the Parks (OFP) was created to maintain the high quality of the township’s parks. A non-profit 501c3 organization, OFP is comprised of residents who volunteer their time through service projects, special events, educational activities and community relations.

Partnerships with the Consumers Credit Union, Kalamazoo Public Library, Kalamazoo Wiffle League, Oshtemo Historical Society, The Kalamazoo/Battle Creek Basket K’Aces, Oshtemo Grange, and Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy help connect our community and benefit our parks. With partner and community member dedication and support, it’s possible for every citizen to enjoy the following locations:

Township Park – 7275 West Main Street
Flesher Field – 3664 South 9th Street
Old Town Hall – 10 South 8th Street
