As a 501c3 nonprofit, West Central Park Project is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors drawn from our community, serving 3 year terms. Each member of the board brings a different perspective and varied skills to the work of supporting and growing the park. Officers are elected by the board from among its members.

We continue to build on the sturdy physical and organizational structures created by the stalwart founding group who created the park. We welcome new board members and invite inquiries from anyone who is motivated, as we are, to expand and deepen our mission
 

Josh Justice

President

Josh Justice has been with West Central Park and West Central Neighborhood since 2016. His many masonry projects around the property include installing the paved paths and ramp at Phoebe's and the Marie; drawing up plans and helping construct the Marie cottages; and installing the tile flooring on the rooftop of the Cafe. He loves to see how the park brings the community together -- especially during movie nights. If you see him in the park, feel free to ask him anything!
