Parks and Countryside Volunteer opportunities for corporate groups and organisations

Increasingly, organisations such as businesses, charities and public sector organisations are choosing group volunteering as a team building exercise with a difference.

Our parks and countryside service offer a wide range of corporate volunteering opportunities for businesses and groups who are keen to improve their local environment.

We manage around 4000 hectares of green spaces across the city, including:

  • 6 city parks including Roundhay, Temple Newsam and Lotherton
  • 62 community parks such as Harehills, Cross Flatts and Pudsey park.
  • 1200 hectares of woodland
  • 47 cemeteries and churchyards
  • 180 nature areas including Otley Chevin, Middleton Woods and Meanwood Valley.
  • 97 allotment sites
  • 500 miles of public rights of way

We also manage many more sites including golf courses, sports pitches, bowling greens, pocket parks, war memorials and a plant nursery.

With this in mind, you can be sure there will always be something to suit your organisation. Tasks can include:

  • Wildlife conservation such as tree planting, pond clearance or wildflower meadow maintenance
  • Parks management such as planting flowers, painting playgrounds, pruning, weeding and mulching.
  • Rights of way maintenance such as path resurfacing, constructing steps or cutting back.
  • Allotment clearance to enable more communities to grow food locally.

We provide a professionally led, safe, flexible and  highly enjoyable experience.  Tools, training, and refreshments are provided on the day.
