The Friends are dedicated to making the green beautiful and useable. During its history this green was threatened and the residents pulled together to buy it in the late 19th century. More of its history can be found Here
It remains a public park to this day and local resident still care for it through the Friends of Fortune Green.
I made a first painting representing a map of Fortune Green. Oddly it is in the clear shape of a fox's head. There is a fox sculpture in the western area and I was told it is a fox hangout at night! A good coincidence!
Watch out for my sketching class in the green on July 31. Should be fun!
