Welcome to Friends of Burnley Parks

Welcome to Burnley’s official website for all the volunteer Friends of Parks groups. Here you will find all the information you need regarding the volunteer activities, events and find out how you can get involved in parks and greenspaces in your area. 

Currently we have 6 Green Flag parks all with active volunteer groups who are the voice of the community and work with Burnley Borough Council to preserve and enhance Burnley’s Parks.

We’ll be adding content as we go, for now, you’ll find the most content under the Friends of Towneley Park.


First Towneley Dragons book now available

The first Towneley Dragons’ book is now available. Read about Max and Rose’s adventure as they spot a dragon and follow the trail to the dragons nest. Introduce yourself to Scout the dragon and find out why he was upset.

The book is available from the Hall Shop during opening hours, or from the Friend’s of Towneley meeting room between 10am and 12 noon on Thursdays and Saturdays.

It’s only £4.99 and all profits will go to The Friends of Towneley to inspire the next generation of Towneley Park lovers.
