Friends Of Harrow Weald


The Friends group was started in Sept 2017 with a goal to improve and tidy up a rat-infested no-go area known as Harrow Weald Recreation Ground also know as Boxtree Park.

Soon this small group started to make a difference to the park, by cleaning the park of rubbish, regular litter picking, reduced fly tipping  and general maintenance, this difference quickly got noticed in surrounding areas in more ways than originally intended or planned, and the friends group grew.

Community Conversations, strolling around the park with complete strangers picking up lazy peoples rubbish, is strangely satifying time well spent, everything we do is about being nice and sharing, and all projects are aimed at the heart of our parks, local community and local areas well being.   

We operate with a can do attitude to everything, we don’t blame others for our area, we find solutions and where possible we try to reduce any public costs with sensible research, conversations and action, this has resulted in many areas of the park changing for the good of all. 

The new Space is due to be completed by early to mid-2019 and is a massive boost to all local residents, we welcome, people of all persuasion and all walks of life. we welcome anyone or everyone who believes they have something nice inside them somewhere. 

Get involved as a local resident - Get involved as a local business 

What we do is healthy, rewarding and fun, we are positive, proactive and respectful to all
