Martin Park is named after Marty and Joanie Martin. these two had been blessing the community and families with their property for over 20 years.
It was then that the property was sold to Oscar and Julie Rodriguez with the understanding that the property came with kids and lots of them!
The Rodriguez family took the calling and started ministry one day and one step at a time. In 2016, Martin Park became a 501c3 with the help of many local churches and volunteers. Martin Park is a unusual property that sits inside of the heart of the Lowell Neighborhood just north of Downtown Fresno.
Martin Park serves as a safe place for kids and families where they can come and play, receiving tutoring, food, clothing and otherwise have their daily needs met. Most importantly, it is a place for discipleship and providing hope.
