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.

As of today, FoRP has a Membership of over 500, made up of a diverse mix of people. Anyone and everyone is welcome and you do not have to live in Roundhay, or even Leeds. All that is needed is a love of Roundhay Park together with a small subscription fee to help support our efforts.

Join On-Line   Single, Joint and Family memberships are available through our shopping cart at only £10, £15 and £20 per annum respectively. All of our income is spent in helping maintain the park for everyone to enjoy. Click Here For Membership Details
