Monroe Park Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to facilitate the renovation of Monroe Park through a public-private partnership. The Mayor of the City of Richmond, the President of VCU, and the citizen Board Members, nominates its directors.
The Conservancy leased the Park in 2018, from the City of Richmond for 30 years. The City will continue to own the Park and retain the right to terminate the lease at any time.
The Conservancy helped finance and oversee the restoration, enhancement and operation of the Park — an historic landmark with cultural, environmental and recreational significance to the City of Richmond, VCU, area residents, businesses and all visitors. The objective is to make the Park welcome for all potential users.
The Park will be maintained by VCU Facilities Management pursuant to a contract with the Conservancy.
