Caring for the Park

If you care and want to get involved, please join the group.

The Council's parks website is

Caring About Park Maintenance

We carry out monthly litter picks to support the regular bin emptying carried out by the parks department, see our calendar.

More to be added - ideas welcome!

Caring About Park Use

We encourage considerate park use for barbeques, litter, wildlife and dogs - educate people? handouts "Park user quiz", t-shirts?

Making it Even Better

As well as looking after what the park already has, we support the improvements that the community wants, such as:

  • Permanent toilets
  • Improving the café (the council will refurbish the kiosk for summer 2019)
  • Reinstating the bandstand as an art and performance space (well supported in the 2019 survey)
  • Reinstating drinking fountains (well supported in the 2019 survey)
  • Improving the main entrance, visibility and signage
  • Working with other community groups to share ideas about buildings in and around the park.
