Our History
Looking after our park since 1994

Since its formation in 1994, the Friends have been committed to promoting and being actively involved in the appearance, preservation, restoration, improvement and well-being of Roundhay Park for the benefit of all its users.

Our Activities

FoRP is always very active. Our first major project was to create The Friends Garden, successfully applying for Grants which, combined with our own resources, enabled us to have a Project Budget of over £10,000. The Garden is at the Old Park Road entrance to Canal Gardens. In 2008, we opened The Geology Trail (in association with The Leeds Geological Association).

If you have a love of The Park, enjoy its open spaces, wooded areas, lakes etc, then FoRP is for you! Membership of The Friends of Roundhay Park costs just £10 per annum for individual membership, £15 per annum for couples and £20 per annum for a Family Membership (2 Adults Plus 2 Children). We are a registered non-profit making charity and all proceeds go into our activities.
