We encourage you to get involved.


We are continuing to work with our Friends' Groups to support the fantastic work they do.

There are many dedicated friends' groups that play a vital role in restoring our local environment. These locals meet regularly to help look after our parks and reserves and work closely with our Parks and Gardens staff. You can join these groups to both help the environment and gain valuable skills that will help you transform your home garden. Visit Council’s website for contact details for the following friends' groups.

  • Friends of Ashburton Forest
  • Friends of Burke Road Billabong
  • Friends of Greythorn Park
  • Friends of Nettleton Park
  • Friends of South Surrey Park
