Three Decades of Success
Mount Vernon Parks Foundation was founded in 1986 by Ralph and Vera Rothrock. Thanks to their efforts Bakerview Park was created soon after that, and has been enjoyed by thousands of users every year since then.
Since that time MVPF has provided the means to help parks related interests flourish, including; Mount Vernon Arts Commission, Adopt-a-Trail Program, Movies In The Park, Scholarships For Kids, Off-Leash Dog Park, Playground Equipment, and more.
Now, more than thirty years after it’s beginning, MVPF’s primary focus has shifted from creating new parks to connecting and enhancing the park spaces and programs Mount Vernon already has.
