Friends of Westfield Park
Participatory Budgeting Fund
About this project
We are seeking funding for a storage container to hold our tools and equipment; a “green roof” for the storage container; gazebos for holding community events in all weathers; and interpretive panels & signage to help people identify and learn about the wildflowers and wildlife in the park.
The Friends of Westfield Park are passionate about improving and enhancing our local park so that it can be enjoyed by all for outdoor exercise, learning about nature, volunteering, community events and improving mental health and wellbeing. Westfield Park is a fantastic but relatively little-known greenspace right in the middle of Bridge of Don, with three schools, a sheltered housing complex and a doctors’ surgery on its border. Thus, the park is accessible for all ages, and abilities. The Friends are a group of enthusiastic volunteers working hard to improve the space by creating wildflower meadows; maintaining the young woodland; creating a nature trail; and holding community events.
