About The Friends


www4  www3 www4 

The Friend Of Harrow Weald started as a community group that took responsibility for our own local park and transforming it from a rat-infested no-go area into a vibrant local park people want to spend time in.

Local residents interested in community and parks are at the heart of everything we do.

    • Joining up the dots between people, nature and the well being for all involved.
    • Health and well being
    • Social isolation
    • Community cohesion
    • Fauna and flora
    • Education
    • Nature
    • Financial and Environmental Sustainability
    • Having fun and relaxing with the locals in parks.

Working towards creating carbon neutral, solar powered, plastic free parks, that are strengthened with a supporting hub of community groups.
