Below are just a few of the many projects the Friends have been involved in since 2001. Your support either financially or by volunteering assures that Huddart and Wunderlich Parks remain beautiful, safe and accessible for everyone.

Recent Park Improvements

The Friends raised money to build a new bathroom at Wunderlich Park and build a new playground at Huddart Park.

Folger Stable Renovation

One of the most significant programs led by the Friends and the Folger Estate Stable Committee has been the massive renovation of the historic Folger Stable, located in Wunderlich Park. For many years, the Stable was slowly deteriorating, with no public funds available to preserve the main building and surrounding Carriage House, Blacksmith Barn, Cold House, and stone walls. In 2006, the Friends began a private fundraising effort for the Stable renovation, including raising an endowment fund for maintenance and programs.

Carriage House

The Carriage House was also in need of repair. The Friends began renovation of the Carriage House in conjunction with the main Stable restoration, and completed work on the Carriage House after the Stable restoration was finished. Improvements made included adding heating, lighting, and a floor restoration.

Folger Stable Carriage Museum

Upon completion of the Folger Stable renovation, the Friends designed and created this wonderful museum, housed in the historic Folger Stable, and continues to maintain and curate new exhibits.

New Bridge at Wunderlich

In 2005, the Friends donated funds towards the much needed bridge repair at the entrance to Wunderlich Park.

Equestrian Grooming Area

Funds were raised by the Friends for the renovation of the area south of the Stable to its original stature and function for horse grooming.

Education

The Friends sponsor children’s education programs at Folger Stable in Wunderlich Park, carried out in conjunction with the San Mateo County Historical Association. The Friends created and continue to lead inspiring nature hikes for kindergarteners and first-graders in Huddart Park.

Invasive plant eradication

Friends volunteers have worked to eradicate invasive plants such as thistle, broom, and ivy that threaten the delicate ecosystem in the parks.

Trail Maintenance

The Friends funded and coordinated groups of volunteers that maintained and repaired trails in the parks, including the Bay Tree, Campground, Chaparral, Chickadee, Chinquapin, Crystal Springs, Dean, Kings Mountain, Meadow, and Redwood Trails.
