The Friends

The Friends of Battersea Park provide a responsible group of Park users whom Wandsworth Council and Park Management can consult about the Park.

 

Some facts:

 

  • Friends' views and ideas are discussed at monthly Committee meetings with Park Management.

  • Our magazine Review is published three times a year and provides a forum for members' ideas and opinions. It contains news, views and articles about the Park as well as a list of forthcoming events.

  • The Friends organise events throughout the year. These include an annual sculpture award (currently taking a break), a barbecue (in the Children's Zoo), lunchtime lectures. The Annual General Meeting is followed by a discussion forum.

  • For our largest project, the beautiful Winter Garden designed by Dan Pearson (in the south-west corner of the Park), we raised £150,000.

  • We published a new history, Battersea Park, by Jennifer Ullman, in 2016, and produced a leaflet on Eric Kennington's War Memorial in 2010.

 

If you love the Park as we do, please join the Friends and share your ideas about how to protect and enhance it.
