Friends of Parks groups

What Friends of Parks groups are, how to join one, how to set one up and the Haringey Friends of Parks Forum.


A Friends of Parks group is a group of residents sharing a passion for their local park or greenspace. They are our key partners.

Together, Haringey’s Friends of Parks groups spend thousands of hours a year improving parks and greenspaces. We’re incredibly thankful for all they do. 

Activities they do includes: 

  • litter picking 
  • organising and delivering community events like guided walks, and summer picnics 
  • planting (wildflowers, bulbs, shrubs, hedges and trees) 
  • trimming and tidying vegetation 
  • promoting activities
  • sharing news 
  • fundraising and campaigning 

In this video, Dave from Friends of Lordship Recreation Ground, talks about Friends groups and how they can transform their local greenspaces.
