When Our Space Park was burned the morning of June 1, 2020, our community came together in efforts to rebuild.  The Community Foundation of South Central New York reactivated their original fund to begin accepting donations to support the rebuilding of this wonderful park. There are many ways to help through the City of Binghamton Parks and Recreation as shown below. Thank you for your overwhelming support!
