Greaves Park is made up of two large gardens which were originally attached to two grand houses - now The Greaves Park pub/restaurant, and Parkfield House. Together these two gardens make a lovely varied park. The land belongs to Lancaster City Council, and they do important jobs such as looking after the play park equipment, and mowing the lawn and grass paths
Friends of Greaves Park
Friends of Greaves Park is a group of local people who love the park and want to help to look after it - and even make it better! Our work is driven by our Vision Statement, which we have included here
Friends of Greaves Park Vision Statement
To make The Greaves Park a lovely tranquil place for people of all ages to visit, to play, to relax, and to enjoy the trees, the green spaces, the flowers, and the wildlife.
To protect and encourage the natural environment.
To preserve and improve the network of paths which provide a green and peaceful route through and around the park.
To build links with the local community and to raise awareness of all that the park can offer
We meet every couple of months to discuss what we need to do. We have regular "work" events that anyone can join in, and other fun events such Bat Walks, and a Wildlife Detective day.
The park has a long and interesting history and we are very proud to look after it today. Our chairperson, Gill Davies, has put together a history of the park which is available to buy at the Visitor Information Centre at the Storey Institute for a very reasonable price.
