The Friends organise several events each year starting with the Spring Talk, when knowledgeable speakers, in their field, present on subjects which concern gardens, horticulture and others items relevant to the park, its trees, wildlife and plants.

Watch the Events Timetable for the “Park Walks” conducted by experts to point out the specimen Trees, Flora and Fauna as well as the Birds and other Wildlife. The annual Bridge Drive has now established itself as one of our autumn events along with The Christmas Carol. The Annual General Meeting usually takes place in the autumn.
