Volunteer groups

Some community parks have 'Friends of' groups and volunteer groups that work in partnership with the Parks and Countryside service to keep them in top condition. To find out more about these, visit our 'Parks and Countryside volunteer groups' page in the related pages section.


To find out about events being held in parks, have a look at the Parks and Countryside Events Leaflet in the downloads section.

Throughout the summer, many parks play host to music in bandstands as part of the International Concert Season.  For details of who's playing where, click on the link in the 'External Links' section of this page.
