Wilthorpe Park, Greenfoot Lane, Barnsley, S75 2TA

Who we are

The Friends of Wilthorpe Park are a group of people who are passionate about a greenspace in their local community. We meet every Saturday morning (weather permitting) 10am through to 11:30am ensuring that the local park is kept clean and tidy, planting, pruning etc. The group have turned an unloved piece of greenspace into an area which is loved and well used by the local community.

How you can help

There are a number throughout the year; planting flowers in different areas of the park, re-varnishing and repainting our 12 metal benches, preparation for the 'Yorkshire in Bloom' awards involving weeding, cleaning all areas, straight edging around all the borders and edges of lawns in the park. No experience necessary, just have enthusiasm. We have all the equipment for various tasks.
