Welcome to Friends of Park Hill Park & Recreation Ground


Welcome to the website (currently refurbishing) created by the Friends of Park Hill Park & Recreation Ground, Croydon’s central park.

We’re a Croydon-based community group working to preserve, protect and improve the historic Park Hill Park and Recreation Ground. We aim to support Croydon residents to improve their physical, social and mental health and overall wellbeing connecting locals at our community arts and gardening events centered on our flagship project The Walled Garden.

We hope you’ll enjoy the information about the park, its community and the events volunteers create within it. If you’d like more information or wish to join us, get in touch!
