Home » About the Friends of Monkey Park

The Friends of Monkey Park is a newly established, volunteer run community group facilitated by Monkey Park Community Hub. Our aim to bring local people together to improve and maintain Chester Street Park (a.k.a. Monkey Park.)

Our Aims


• To apply for grant funding and raise funds ourselves, to replace the old and dangerous play area with new play equipment;
• To work with the local council, police and community to reduce key issues such as littering, dog fouling and antisocial behaviour;
• To arrange events that bring people into the park;
• To act as guardians of the park


We want to create a park that is open and accessible to the whole community - please get in touch and share your views!
