About Friends of Parks groups
Friends of Parks groups are a strong link between us and the community. Group members are regular park users who care about their local green spaces and want to give their opinion on ways that we can improve our parks.
Friends groups help us to create development and improvement plans that meet the needs of the parks they regularly use. This allows us to prioritise improvements that have local support, are sustainable, and offer better value for money.
