Love your park – get involved

How to get involved with your local park.

Islington's parks and green spaces are your parks and green spaces. And there are many ways that you can get involved.

If you want to be involved in management decisions, gardening days and organising community events you can join or form a Friends of Park group. All groups are part of the Friends of Forum who also meet regularly to share ideas and discuss parks issues at a more strategic level.

If you would like to, you can organise an event in your local park. 

If you enjoy gardening, you can join other people by volunteering at a community planting day. Or you can take on your own patch of Islington, by planting and maintaining a forgotten corner or tree pit garden. Find out more about Islington in Bloom
