Friends of Mario Lanza Park

Friends of Mario Lanza Park is a committee of Queen Village residents dedicated to maintaining and beautifying Mario Lanza Park, located in the 200 block of Catherine and Queen Streets. The Friends’ group was formed in 1987,¬† when the park was in a semi-abandoned state, with high weeds, uncut grass, and no planted areas.¬† Through its ongoing fundraising efforts and volunteer activities throughout the year, Friends of Mario Lanza Park has created a beautiful park oasis of green and beauty enjoyed by Queen Village neighbors.

On Tuesday nights in June, Mario Lanza Park hosts KidFest, a series of events that include Bike parade evening, Firetruck Night, Mummer’s Night, and Halloween Night.

Friends of Mario Lanza Park needs volunteers and support throughout the year. For more information, please contact
