While we work toward launching our full website this fall, thank you for visiting this temporary site. Please join us in creating Dorothea Dix Park.

Master Plan

The Master Plan process represents an unprecedented opportunity to create America’s next great public park. Dorothea Dix Park is truly a special place that has the potential to capture the imagination of the world with compelling, courageous and innovative ideas.  Our community has never done anything like this before, and we won’t ever have another opportunity like this again.  Join us in creating the future of Dorothea Dix Park.

Visiting the Park

Come enjoy the park while you help create the park.  Throughout the master planning process, we will host a variety of early programs, activities and events at Dorothea Dix Park.  Join us in everything from small and mid-size programs geared toward local residents to large destination events for the whole state and beyond. And, of course, come on your own and with friends and family for picnics, bike rides, dog walks, and more.


This is your park, and it needs your support.  Donors who are giving now are special. You’re investing in creating America’s next great public space.  You’re investing in the impact Dorothea Dix Park can have – before you or anyone knows exactly what the park will be.  You are more than “members,” more than “friends,” more than “sustainers.” Put simply, you are visionaries.

Every donor who makes a gift at any level during this entrepreneurial time will be called a Dorothea Dix Park “Visionary.”  And your vision and generosity make all the difference.

Every dollar you give supports the master planning, community engagement, and early events/programs that will allow us to create something extraordinary – an inspirational and exciting Dorothea Dix Park that will have a profound impact for generations to come.  Become a visionary today.  We can’t do it without you.
