Who we are

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.

What we do

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, please do join us. 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 any 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. Liverpool Streetscene Services Ltd 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 and as you can see the trees have started being planted so we are getting there!  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!

Well, it has been a strange year, to say the least.  We have been pleased to see that the park served a lot of people very well in the worst of the lockdowns and we were happy to see so many people enjoying the space.

In terms of activity in and for the park, we have been some what restricted but have still managed to achieve a fair bit.  The Friends have planted trees and the Mersey Forest is continuing with its planting, putting some in on Long Lane and, hooray, restoring the central avenue in the park.  The fenced off areas are a contribution to the Northern Forest project, also managed by Mersey Forest.  We are making our contribution to climate change melioration. Please help to protect young trees that are planted.

The Friends have recently done another plant sale again it was a great success and good to see people returning, so thank you to all who attended.

We have received some fantastic news with regards to all the Liverpool Parks and Green Spaces please read more in our news section.

You may have noticed we have planted a rose bed to welcome you into the park from the Claredon Road/Island Road end. Ivan has also revamped our notice board at the other entrance its looking fab. Ivan has also made some new planters to put underneath our noticeboards these are now in place and planted up with summer bedding.

Please see a video in our news section that one of our members Ivan Rubery has created showing off our lovely park, well done and thank you Ivan
