Jon Papp, President of the Friends of Oak Cliff Parks (FOCP), will provide an overview of the work that is currently underway in Oak Cliff parks and the Kiest Conservation Areas in particular. Jon will talk about the work that FOCP has done in Kiest Park which forms the northern and western boundaries of Oak Park Estates and Druid Hills neighborhoods. One of the more recent accomplishments of the FOCP are the trails that have been opened in the southern end of Kiest Park, just south of the Tennis Courts.
The mission of the Friends of Oak Cliff Parks is to maintain and restore horticulture in the five historic parks of Oak Cliff, to provide educational and social activities that promote the love of gardening, to advocate for conservation and a greater appreciation of the environment and to back public policies that support our goals.
The Friends of Oak Cliff Parks Garden Club (FOCP) was organized in 2002 by David Klempin and Nola Rae Smith along with the support of John Jenkins, Regional Manager of the Dallas Parks and Recreation Department, for the purpose of restoring horticulture in and preserving the historic parks of Oak Cliff. These parks include Kiest Memorial Garden, Kiest Conservation Area, Lake Cliff Park, Founders' Park, Kidd Springs Park, and Lake Cliff Park.
