We are a group of local people dedicated to the improvement and general well-being of South Park.
Although entirely independent, we are recognised by the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham (the park's legal owner) as the principal user group for the park and the main forum for fomulating users' views.
The primary objective of the Friends is to secure the restoration and regeneration of South Park.
The Friends was formally established in January 2009, following six years of lobbying and campaigning by the PRARA local residents' association, and grew out of the South Park Users' Group that PRARA set up with the help of the council. Membership is open to all and we encourage all park users to become a Friend. The more friends there are, the more effective we become. We issue regular newsletters and hold at least two open meeting each year.
We have a formal Constitution, please click here to view it [PDF - 320kb].
