The Friends of Payson Parks & Recreation provide funding for the Town of Payson's Parks& Recreation Department. This includes "scholarships" for youth who cannot afford the nominal fees to participate in sports programs and support of other sports and recreation programs. We are attempting to raise funds to make the children's playground areas safer (Cost about $6,000.) and to finance the cost of a Parks Master Plan (Cost about $100,000). The Master Plan is needed before we can plan other improvements to the parks.
