The Friends are a 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.

downrightLocal residents are at the heart of everything we do

 

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

 

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

 

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!
