The Floral Neighborhood Association (FPNA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit community organization (EIN: 33-0908244) committed to developing a sense of unity within and preserving the integrity of our neighborhood. All residents and non-resident owners within Floral Park’s defined boundaries are members of FPNA. The neighborhood boundaries are, to the south, the north side of 17th Street; on the west, both sides of Flower Street; to the north, both sides of Riverside Drive; and on the east, the west side of Broadway.
The Floral Park Neighborhood Association is an organization made up entirely of volunteers. Our mission is to preserve the integrity and historical significance of our homes and to develop a sense of unity within the Floral Park neighborhood. We aim to educate the neighborhood and surrounding communities of the historical significance of our neighborhood, its architectural value and the impact it has had since its origin. We are currently working towards the designation of a national historic district.
Floral Park is a diverse, inclusive and very social community where neighbors greet each other with a friendly smile and a hearty hello. There's a neighborhood garden club, walking club, LGBTQ social group, Gay Neighbors Families & Friends group, Families of Floral Park group, book clubs, and even a garden swap club. In addition, each year, the FPNA presents an outdoor summer concert, a family holiday party, a holiday home decorating competition, the holiday walk of lights, quarterly mixers, Chili Cook-off, 4th of July Freedom Fest block party, and, of course, the Floral Park Home & Garden Tour! There's no lack of social activities here!
Another purpose of the FPNA is to give back to the community. Each year, we award scholarships to Santa Ana students. In 2021, thanks to the generosity of our neighbors, the success of the annual Floral Park Home and Garden Tour and other fund raising efforts, we were able to award scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to eleven Santa Ana students. In keeping with our mission statement, these scholarships are designed to recognize and honor young people for their own individual volunteerism, to acknowledge their efforts in giving of their own time and commitment to the community in hopes that they will be encouraged to continue their educational goals and service to others.
The FPNA also supports Santa Ana charities and this year donated to four local non-profit organizations:
HOPE BUILDERS - Empowering young adults with mentorship, life skills and job training.
OC CENTER FOR THERAPEUTIC ARTS - Providing innovative artistic, educational and therapeutic programs for at-risk youth, adults and families.
