Show your support for the Park by registering online. All donations from this event benefit "Save the Boardwalks", Friends of Wildwood Campaign. The Friends of Wildwood is a non-profit organization that helps fund programs, as well as enhancements and additions to Wildwood Park and the Benjamin Olewine III Nature Center.

The North Boardwalk trail has been closed since January 2020 after flooding damaged one of the bridges. This Friends of Wildwood campaign is working to raise monies that will help fund the creation of a connector boardwalk from the Delta Boardwalk to the North Boardwalk. "Save the Boardwalks" will ensure these trails are here for us and future generations to enjoy! Help us reach our goal of creating this new trail!
