    The Friends of Greenhead Park:
    •encourage everyone, young and old, to use, value and look after the park
    •provide a recognised channel through which users of the park are involved in decisions made about the park
    •work for practical improvements to the park to ensure that it is a safe place with appropriate amenities

    The Friends of Greenhead Park committee meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 7pm. The meetings are held in the Greenhead Park pavilion (by the bowling greens).

    Other meetings, including the Annual General Meeting in March, are advertised in the park and on our website.

History

  1. The Friends of Greenhead Park gave a boost to Kirklees Council's plans to bring life back to one of Huddersfield's premier parks. At a meeting in January 2007, the newly revitalised group welcomed proposals for the regeneration of the park and the opportunity to lead community involvement and consultation on future plans.

    It was agreed that the new Friends Group would build on previous Friends' work and provide opportunities for local residents and others with an interest in the future of the park to contribute their views on the redevelopment, support the sustained development of the park, and organise their own events and activities to complement the regular and established programme which already runs in the park.

    Since then the group has grown in numbers and has played an active role in the park restoration project. We now have several project groups that have been working with the council and other partners on issues such as children's play and activities, horticulture, sports facilities and park history.

    There are lots of other things we'd like to do, if we get enough support from park users, and we'd love to hear any ideas or suggestions for activities.
