Salem Park Improvement Fund

The Salem Park Improvement Fund provides funding opportunities for Salem’s neighborhood associations to make local park improvements. Applications must be submitted by one of the 19 neighborhood associations recognized by the City of Salem.

Since 2006, Salem City Council has approved its budget each year with approximately $60,000 in General Fund money toward this program to be used as matching funds. If you are interested in making an improvement to your local park, please contact your neighborhood association.
