The Friends of Peel Park

The Friends of Peel Park was formed in August 2004 and was (and still is) open to anyone, over the age of eighteen (18), who is committed to our aims. These are to:

Over the years we have done a lot of litter picks and secured small grants for new notice boards and nest boxes. We also have also organised some events and plan to run more. We also provide a link between the people who use the park and the management who look after it. We have been really lucky to be given sole use of the café – open every Saturday 10am to 2pm. We offer delicious home baking, regular events and opportunities and a point of contact. We have recently secured funding for the Totems and Play Trail which we hope you will enjoy. If you would like to become a member – ask at the café or check out our café noticeboard.

The Totem Trail was installed in the park in February 2018 and was paid for by The Friends of Peel Park using money raised from the café. The Totem Trail consists of 12 animal and birds placed around the park.

The Play Trail was installed in March 2018 and was funded by the National Lottery Awards For All. The Play Trail consists of 9 pieces of wooden play equipment place around the park. We have also produced a map which is available in the café and at Communityworks. You could also click on the link and print it yourself! The map has each piece of equipment marked on it and the idea is to tick off each item as you find them. You might want to do this all in one go or come back again and again until you have experienced them all. There is also a Tree Trail so that you can spot some of the many beautiful trees in the park.
