The Baxter's Pond Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to assist Nassau County in maintaining, beautifying and improving Baxter’s Pond and the area immediately surrounding it in the Barbara Johnson Park and Preserve.
As BPF was established in 2003, so was a partnership with the Nassau County Parks and Recreation Department. One of 30+ parks managed by Nassau County, the five-acre Baxter's Pond and Preserve is a "passive" park
Baxter's Pond Foundation's mission of maintenance, advocacy and beautification projects are ongoing, allowing the park to host a number of community activities.
Join friends and neighbors by volunteering or making a donation. Your support will enable us to continue the level of care you have come to know at Baxter's Pond.
