Be Part of the change !

Friends of Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery and Walpole Park

Talking of trees, you may be pleased to hear that the resistograph measurements taken in July reveal that there has been no further deterioration to the Cedars of Lebanon. We are looking into putting some new cedars in the park.

We are some way through a very exciting period for the Friends as the Manor & Gallery have now been closed for over a year and some exciting discoveries have been made by the conservators. We await the full report with much anticipation!

The latest programme of Friends activities have been very successful to date and Jackie and Kate our events gurus are planning new exciting outings for the rest of the year even as i write this!

The outings are proving very popular so do put your name down asap if you are keen to come.

In the meantime do enjoy some of this summer sunshine by taking a turn around the Park.

Summer 2016

Greetings Friends

Here we are in full summer now and the park is looking simply lovely. I love the way it is beginning to look more like the countryside than an urban park, with its natural look of long grass and wild flowers. If you look closely into the areas of long grass next to the wild flower meadows you will be surprised by the variety of small wild flowers there....tiny pink and little yellow blooms abound with the daisies.

We understand that the Festival in Walpole Park this year will be a week shorter - it has grown considerably over the past few years - from the point of view of the Friends its does mean that there is less damage to the Park environment.

The playground is a popular as ever but there is a slight problem occuring with the number of people who walk through the oaks to get to it. It may be that this access to the playground will have to be cut off as the oaks will definitely begin to suffer with such high footfall on their root plates.

In order to maintain that wonderful tree lined avenue and our valuable old oaks, money is being raised to tastefully fence off the vulnerable ones and encourage the families to approach from a different angle.

Early Summer in Walpole Park
