DEDICATED TO PROMOTING LOCAL HISTORY WHILE PRESERVING AND RESTORING THE HISTORICAL ROCKHAVEN PARK.
Who We Are
Friends of Rockhaven is a 501c(3) non-profit corporation that exists to support Rockhaven Park and the entities that call Rockhaven Sanitarium their home. We fulfill our mission by raising funds to help preservation efforts, give tours of the property, organize events that publicize the Park to create outside interest and garner public support, create volunteer opportunities to help clean and restore.
"Rockhaven is listed on the State and National Registries of Historic Resources and considered as a Place of Women's Historical Significance with those who have visited and learned about it. For a time, the City of Glendale also embraced the significance of Rockhaven Sanitarium. But not anymore.
Today, Rockhaven is on a list of surplus property, and the danger of losing this remarkable landmark and the charming facility is very real. It is public property, a public park…but the gates are closed. It looms, ghost-like, just out of view" —Corina Roberts, Nonprofit | Jul 14, 2018.
We at the Friends of Rockhaven have been fighting the good fight for the community to help save a preserve our history from becoming a "surplus property". We believe that together we have a louder, stronger voice.
The Board's Vision
The priorities of the Friends of Rockhaven are as follows:
We hope to work with the City of Glendale to rehabilitate Rockhaven and open it as a public park and community center.
In order to accomplish these goals we are allocating resources to the Foundation’s growth in areas such as fundraising, communications and website maintenance.
