Downing Park Planning Committee
The Downing Park Planning Committee is a grassroots community group that formed in the late 1980s to revitalize a neglected historic treasure in Newburgh - Downing Park.
Throughout the year, the Shelter House at Downing Park mounts month-long exhibitions of notable arists, photographers, and crafts makers.
The Downing Park Planning Committee and several local Garden Clubs have been busy replanting gardens throughout the park.
