Paul Davies, Birkenhead Park's Manager, and Laura Williams, Forest School Practitioner, were cordially invited to be part of a ceremony honouring Doug Blonsky in New York City on May 2nd.
Doug is the President and CEO of the Central Park Conservatory, the non-profit group responsible for maintaining the park daily and which also raises 75% of the park's annual budget.
The 36th annual Frederick Law Olmstead Gala paid tribute to Doug Blonsky who gave 33 years with the group that rescued the park from decades of neglect. Doug has also visited Birkenhead Park on several occasions, recognising that without Birkenhead Park, there would be no New York Park.
