The Friends of Harrow Weald are a group of local residents that have taken responsibility for and transformed the local park and area and are in the process of creating a Smart Park..
Rather than blaming others for any problems in an area, we aim to find solutions and, where possible, to reduce any public costs with sensible research, conversation and action.
After formulating a bucket list of what we would like from our local park? All the combined ideas pointed to Health and Wellbeing for people and the park.
Marketing reports and Feasibility studies were NOT taken, we asked each other what we wanted from our park and area and talked like Friends to create ideas, this all started from litter picking, we did however get a very knowledgeable eco friendly bug caring expert to look over the park and create a report as part of knowing what we have and what we are doing.
The amazing grape vine of life produced a long list of great ideas which have been turned into various projects all undertaken by volunteers, these ideas create the basis of a we call a SMART PARK.
Work is not work when your having fun, feeling good about what you are doing and making yourself healthier the more you work, so we decided to bottle this and create a charity to help others uncork the smart park bottle.
Together communities create!
We work with anyone:
Working with Local Residents, Local Business, Local Council, Central Government and Multi-National Corporations, together we are making a difference.
If you are interested in creating a smart park for your local area, we are happy to help. In the first instance please email us
About the Friends
Creating a unique opportunity for parks to become a vibrant self-funding community space, with wellbeing for people and nature, education and financial sustainability running through everything.
Harrow is one of the most diverse and interesting boroughs nested in the North West part of London.
The community is made up of everyone from pink people, blue ones, religious ones, and non-religious ones, and ones that work, some don’t, others shower regularly, some don’t, almost 99.91% are very very nice, the odd one or two are not, there are underline problems like everywhere, but being positive and nice to others reduces the bad and together communities highlight the good. Harrow is a really really great and vibrant place to live.
