Friends of Riverside Park are a group of committed volunteers working towards improving the park for the use of the whole community. We are involved in planning the future of the park, as well as keeping what we already have in good shape.
We hope that by involving the community to help make decisions about the park, we will help ensure the future of the park is a bright one.
Walks in the park
We were successful in obtaining funding from Paths for All to produce pathways within riverside Park.
We set up a competition to which the general public were asked to come up with names for the paths. This was achieved and we are delighted to announce the new ten walks in Riverside Park are now ready for the community to use.
A leaflet showing a description, length and terrain of the walks are now available at different points within the park.

The orchard has its own Facebook site where you can find out more information about it. Click anywhere on this text to take you to the Orchard Facebook page.

Pam always said she would like to be remembered with a bench so park users could rest their weary legs. The Friends would like to achieve this with your help. If you would like to gift a donation please click on the 'Pay Pal' Donate button below.
