THE STORY:

Creating a park conservancy that would bring more private support to Belle Isle has been discussed for many years. Nationally, park conservancies, working with city government, make it possible to renovate buildings, re-landscape large park areas and add programming elements that serve people of all ages, making parks more welcoming for everyone. Belle Isle has long history of private support organizations, starting when the Friends of Belle Isle was founded in 1972. Joining the effort in 1988, the Belle Isle Botanical Society began raising money for projects to improve the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory. In 2004, the Belle Isle Women’s Committee was created and its first project was to upgrade Sunset Point. One year later in 2005, the Friends of the Belle Isle Aquarium was formed with the goal of reopening the 100-year-old aquarium. In 2009, the four organizations discussed joining forces to form a single organization that could continue all of their work and be a more effective advocate for island park improvement projects. Together, they became the Belle Isle Conservancy.
