The Friends of Telford Town Park
The Friends of Telford Town Park were started in 2003 with a small group of 3 people, who all felt that the Park needed some extra care and attention. The group was formally constituted in July 2004 and currently consists of over 20 members from all walks of life.
The constitution of the Friends states:
“The aims of the Friends are to promote and conserve
The sustainable use of the Park
The biodiversity of the Park
The existing boundaries of the Park
The built structures of the Park
And protect it from inappropriate use or development”
In keeping with the above constitution, the Friend’s have been and will be, involved in many different activities around the 150 hectares (approximately 400 acres) that is Telford Town Park. It has to be one of the largest urban town parks in Europe and is a fantastic asset for the people of Telford and beyond. It is commonly known as the “The Jewel in the Crown of Telford”.
