We are a group of people, working in co-operation with the Oxford Parks Department, who feel the need for to have voice representing park users, helping to protect the special nature of this lovely park for the future. Members are people who cherish the park for its tranquillity and for being home to an unusually wide variety of trees.

Membership of the Friends is open to, not only park users, but to all for a modest annual subscription. The Friends is run by a volunteer committee. In accordance with the constitution.
