Parks and green spaces are key to city life, by enhancing them for people and wildlife we can help sustain these beautiful places well into the future.

We are an independent charitable organisation founded in January 2015. Although BCP Council has overall responsibility to maintain and develop the conurbation’s parks we work alongside them with the aim to raise much needed funds for improvement and enhancements above what the council provide.

We get our teeth into the following key themes:
