What we're about

The Friends of Platt Fields Park exists to maintain, promote and improve Platt Fields Park, the largest park in South Manchester.

We do this through a series of monthly volunteer sessions and events which are all open for the local community to get involved in. Whether you enjoy gardening and want to come along for a few hours work in our orchard or soft fruit garden, or want to get involved with organising events and networking, this group is for you!

We will be posting details of volunteer sessions and events here, along with details of how you can come along and help. Platt Fields Park is becoming increasingly dependent on volunteers to keep things going and you can make a difference in the community by helping out, and hopefully we can teach you some practical skills and give you some great experiences!
