We are a local non-profit group based in Garston, Liverpool. We formed to help improve and maintain our local park. Throughout the year, we run various events and fundraisers to help raise money for the park. We do this for the community, and anyone within the local area and beyond, to make sure our park is the best it can be. We want to keep Garston Park as somewhere people are happy to visit, whether that’s a quick walk with the dog, or an afternoon playing sports on the field. Your help and interest is greatly appreciated, the group is for everyone who wants to be involved and play a part in making our community the best it can be. So, don’t be shy, drop us a message on our contact page. We would love to hear your thoughts and opinions and always welcome new members.
Our main aim is clear, we want to make our local park the best it can be. The Friends work hard to promote, maintain and improve the park but there are only a few of us. Do join us. This year, we have held plant sales, carried out tree planting and tree maintenance, planted wild flowers and introduced bog plants in the wet areas; we’ve organized community litter picks and taken part in Garston Park Fun Day. If you have suggestions for improvements for the park or ideas for events, do contact us. Just now, we are working on a management plan for the park so that we can tackle regular jobs systematically. Glendale, the contractors for the City parks, of course do the heavy work, but with funding very tight, we take on a lot of the refinements we want to see. The big dream is to restore the avenue of trees which used to go through the centre of the park. We would love to continue making these positive changes to our park, but we can’t do it all alone, we need your help too!
