Buttonwood Park is one of the most beautiful spots in New Bedford. You can visit a zoo, take part in recreational activities, or just enjoy a beautiful day. Keeping a careful watch over the park is a group called 'The Friends of Buttonwood Park.' WBSM's Kasey Silva speaks with a representative of the Friends group, reviewing recent changes at the park, their future plans, and an event planned for June 10th called "Coffee in The Dell." If you plan on attending the event, please email the group at friends@buttonwoodpark.org.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
