Friends of Bute Park
The Friends of Bute Park are passionate about improving the park and keeping it special.
The Friends work closely with the Bute Park team to:
- carry out conservation,
- organise litter picks,
- label trees, and
- remove invasive plants such as Himalayan Balsam.
To promote the natural and historic features of the park, the friends also organise:
- nature rambles,
- bird watches, and
- wildlife surveys.
To represent park users, the friends group:
- provide feedback on new ideas and initiatives,
- offer advice and a park-user-perspective to the Council, and
- meet regularly to discuss and support the park maintenance and management plan.
