What We Do
Want to be involved in improving your local park?
‘Friends of park’ groups work with the Council’s Parks team to create better open spaces. Each group helps care for a specific park or green space in the borough.
Through the partnership, park users get a greater say in what goes on in their local parks. All Greenwich residents are welcome to join a ‘friends’ group. Initially a Friends group was established for Maryon Wilson Park in the 1980s but the current Friends of Maryon and Maryon Wilson Parks group was established in 2001. The new group has a role to play in partnership with the Council caring for Maryon Park & Gilbert’s Pit, Maryon Wilson Park and the Thames Barrier Parkland in Charlton, London.
