The Friends of Canons Park is a community group set up in 2003 to support Harrow Council in their bid for a lottery grant. The council were successful in gaining a Heritage Lottery Grant which was used to restore and improve the facilities of the park. Our aims are to work with the Council on the restoration project and beyond, and encourage greater use and enjoyment of our historic local green space.
The Friends liaise with Council officers and other local interest groups (e.g. Canons Park Residents' Association), organise regular bird watching walks in the park, hold an annual Family Fun Day in the park, and generally get involved in issues relating to the park and the surrounding area.
Anyone who is interested in the Park, its history, or how it can be improved for the future is welcome to join the Friends.
