Welcome to the Friends of Rowntree Park!

The Friends of Rowntree Park is a voluntary group which seeks to promote the well-being of the Park and its users.  The park is owned by the council and we consult with them on developments and changes to the park. We also carry out some practical tasks, such as gardening and maintenance.  We also run a wide range of events and activities for the community.

We run a membership scheme; by joining the Friends, you can support our work.  We also welcome active volunteers.  You can find out more about the Friends of Rowntree Park here.
