The Yalecrest Neighborhood Council helps promote a safe and vibrant community in this historic neighborhood
with its iconic architecture, tree-lined streets and parks.

We act as a forum for residents to voice their opinions about issues vital to the community and to engage in activities, projects and causes that reflect Yalecrest’s vitality.

Join the “Friends of Miller Park

In the 1980s, Yalecrest formed the Miller Park Committee, a citizens oversight group. Based on comments as well as suggestions received from Yalecrest residents, the YNC is re-creating the spirit of that early group and formed the  “Friends of Miller Park.”  The committee is charged with maintaining the historical and environmental integrity of Miller Bird Refuge and Nature Park. This is accomplished through public awareness, occasional clean-up projects, bird watching, vegetation and tree plantings, and educational outings in the park.
