Park Friends groups

Park Friends groups are made up of local people who share a passion for their local park. 

Friends groups can: 

  • plant trees and plants 
  • renovate bowling greens and pavilions 
  • grow food 
  • organise park activities (see our activities and events guide
  • help with: 
    • general gardening 
    • clearing vegetation 
    • clearing litter 

Community involvement is an important part of parks winning their Green Flag Awards.  

Join a park Friends group 

Friends groups always welcome new members.  

Check Haringey Friends of Parks Forum (external link) to see if your local park has a Friends group. You can also check the park page to see if a Friends group is listed. 

Some Friends groups don’t have a public email address so please email us instead at parks@haringey.gov.uk. Let us know which group you’re interested in joining. 

If you can’t find a Friends group for your local park, it means they don’t yet have one. We can help and support you if you’d like to set one up.
