Friends of Parks groups play a vital role in enhancing and protecting local parks.

Giving their time and energy as volunteers these groups work in a variety of ways such as fundraising, practical park improvement projects and running events in their park. Many Friends of Parks groups have their own website or use Facebook to organise their activities. Where possible we have included links to Friends of Parks groups on the individual park pages throughout the website.

If there isn’t a Friends of Park group for your park why not consider setting one up?

Some councils provide useful information and support about setting up a Friends Groups, for example: City of Edinburgh Council and Glasgow City Council

Some groups have their own websites, for example Friends of Hazlehead Park, Aberdeen
