Revitalizing Your Park

Revealing the magic of Ithaca's historic lakefront gem, Stewart Park, through strategic landscape improvements and maintenance.

Your support of Friends of Stewart Park (FSP) empowers us to provide park visitors with an idyllic Park experience through improvements and maintenance of the City of Ithaca's historic lakefront gem.  From restoring iconic structures like the Picnic Pavilion to replacing neglected and overgrown gardens with vibrant swaths of native plants, FSP is creating and revealing a landscape where all are welcomed to encounter the benefits of a beautiful and functional public park along the southern shore of Cayuga Lake.


Friends of Stewart Park is a public nonprofit organization formed in 2011 to spearhead the revitalization of Stewart Park. Working in partnership with the park’s owner, the City of Ithaca, and with many community organizations and park stakeholders, FSP is following the recommendations of the Stewart Park Rehabilitation Action Plan in order to restore Stewart Park to its original glory by its centennial on July 4, 2021.


Your help is needed along the path to revitalizing Stewart Park! Each strategic improvement to the Park is brought to fruition by the committed donors, volunteers, and park champions who support the FSP vision. Current projects include Cascadilla Boathouse restoration, accessible carousel ramp fundraising and installation, Fuertes Overlook revitalization, Park paddling improvements, and Picnic Pavilion restoration, and inclusive playground planning.
