2018 FANS Photo Calendars are available in limited supply. Order yours today.

Each year, we take the winning photos from our annual photo contest and create a beautiful photo calendar. These stunning calendars, featuring our park, generate proceeds which we use to fund projects within the park. Recent and ongoing projects include:

  • The newly installed bicycle repair and tire inflation stand
  • New hedges for the Mount Vernon gardens
  • Adopt-a-tree program
  • Replacing the kiosks within the park gardens

These 3 pages are representative of the calendar which features all of the photos in the winning slide show below. To get yours, contact :
