The Friends of Harrow Weald is a charity that aims to provide people in the community with enjoyable parks.

How do we do this?

  • We do this by working towards transforming parks into the very best community centres, for the benefit of both the environment and park users.
  • This is achieved in several different ways, much like the jigsaw of life.
  • To create tomorrow's parks today with financial stability we use a convergence of nature, technology, recycling, education and wellbeing for humans and bugs alike, with many conversations and goodwill of residents.
  • Who are we? Residents taking responsibility for our own parks and area, this has translated into a more community minded area around parks where people know each other to say hello.
  • Parks provide a supportive space for locals, if locals love the park.

There is so much more to do…………

"If we, as the community don't do it who will?"
