The Friends of Roundhay Park (FoRP) is a charitable organisation formed in 1994 by local Leeds residents who decided to get involved with the Park, rather than just talk about it. They had the vision to create an organisation bringing together all lovers of the Park.

With funding from a bequest from local resident and park lover Mary Hill, the Friends of Roundhay Park engaged local sculptor Shane Green to transform a dead tree into a wonderful new attraction in the area below Canal Gardens.  Present to celebrate the opening were Mary’s nephew and nieces and their families, as well as many Friends and park staff.
