About the Friends

The Friends are a local community group that started by taking 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.

This has only been possible with support and commitment from many different areas of the community. 

Can we help you? We are a community minded group, see our can we help you information. If you need anything please ask, we are not mind readers but will respond and help you find solutions for anything you need.

Park becomes smarter when residents, local community groups, religious organisations, businesses, Council staff, Local Government and Local Councillors come together to create a functioning support network around parks and evolve into a vibrant self-funding community space for everyone to use and enjoy!


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

Together they become stronger by communicating information and ideas, building awareness, creating a sharing knowledge bank, and technical skills with other community groups.

Free drinking water for everyone.
