Friends of Pulaski Park
"The City of Holyoke has certainly been wise to provide this elevated park commanding views over the Connecticut River. The location and the principal feature of its plan -- a broad promenade following the crest of the bluff -- are excellent."
J.C. Olmsted, in a letter to the city of Holyoke, April 1901
Pulaski Park is a historically significant park located in downtown Holyoke, Massachusetts. Holyoke, known as Paper City, was the first planned industrial city in the country. Though designed initially to power mills, Holyoke's dam and three-level canal system now produce abundant renewable energy. Pulaski Park was designed as a 'promenade park' overlooking the beautiful Connecticut River and the dam.
Friends of Pulaski Park is a park advocacy organization, dedicated to the restoration, preservation and improvement of Pulaski Park for the enjoyment of present and future generations. We collaborate with government, public and private organizations and individuals who care about Pulaski Park.
Support Pulaski Park!
Friends of Pulaski Park is raising money to clear as much of the river view as is allowable by environmental regulations. Being able to see the river from the park was the most requested improvement (83% of respondents) in a survey of park users. The work is very expensive and we really need your help.
