Welcome to the Friends Of Ordsall Parks Website
The friends group for Ordsall Park and Monmouth Park
The Great British Spring Clean is on this year again from March 3-5, 2017. join us on Sat 4th March @ 11am. We need volunteers to turn up and show their support!!
Remember this event has the full support of our council and personally by the mayor.
To show support for this event we will move our litter pick from Saturday 11th March to Saturday 4th at 11am. Everyone welcome, meet by the community garden. Gloves, black bags and litter picks provided.
Remember this is weather permitting, if there is poor weather on the day we may have to cancel.
We will notify if this is the case on our Facebook page, twitter and this website.
We are saddened to report that some of the Horse Chestnuts trees surrounding the curved footpath (between St Clements Drive pedestrian entance and the community garden) are having to be removed.
This is due to disease affecting around 8 or so of these trees. The council have been carrying out a monitoring programme for the last couple of months and because the disease is well advanced there is no choice but to remove these on health and safety grounds. The trees will be replaced in due course (expected in 2018) with some new trees of a different type. Unfortunately there has been a spate of disease affecting Horse Chestnut trees generally, not just in Ordsall Park.
"Ordsall Park improvement works due to start towards the end of March - more details to be posted shortly...
