The Friends

The pressure to maintain our green spaces is increasing, and certainly this is true for Battersea Park, where we have seen a considerable increase in footfall over the last few years. The Friends of Battersea Park is a local charity which exists to help protect and maintain the Park as an oasis of tranquillity, natural beauty and recreation. For thirty five years we have liaised between Park users and those who manage the Park, providing a voice for users of one of the most popular and beautiful London Parks. Our role includes raising funds to improve and protect the Park, being consulted on new projects, and lobbying the Council about problems in the Park. We are also a leading authority on the Park’s natural and historic layout.  Some of our recent projects have been:

  • funding the replanting of the Winter Garden after the damage sustained in Lockdown
  • funding local primary schools to conduct syllabus-relevant outings to the Park
  • restoring and maintaining the topiary in the Russell Page Garden
  • publishing a History of Battersea Park.
