About Us

 

Established in July 2017 we work together with Birmingham City Council to continue to help maintain Kings Heath Park, for the whole community and future generations, by bringing people together. 

The Friends of Kings Heath Park has a common vision and aim to give everyone, from local communities, a sense of belonging and ownership. We also aim to encourage people who feel isolated, suffer loneliness and feel excluded from society, regardless of their age, to join us and participate in the events we put on, as well as enjoying the park itself.

The diversity of people’s backgrounds and circumstances is appreciated and positively valued within the Friends of Kings Heath Park. We know that the park is there for everyone and we wish to encourage continued use of the park for relaxation, recreation and enjoyment for all.

 

We hold –

  • regular litter picking events and arrange free social events in the park, where possible.
  • help maintain the general open space and run ‘Forest Schools sessions’ to further educate children about nature and the environment.
  • hold camp fire get-together’s, children’s parties around the fire in the park, pond maintenance days, woodland event days and maintain the fruit garden. Alongside this together we hold festive and seasonal events, to name but a few.

If you would like to be involved and become a member please go to our ‘contact us’ page.

As a group we work very closely with the Park Ranger Service who help guide us.

We positively encourage schools, people who feel isolated, feel excluded from society, experience loneliness, all of which may lead to poor physical or mental health.
