Friends of Queens Park - Glasgow
Friends of Queens Park aims to preserve and maintain the Queens Park, in the South Side of Glasgow, for the benefit of the wider community.
This ambitious local group organises park clean ups with local volunteers and engages with the community to establish local priorities through monthly public meetings and regular Facebook updates. It has been campaigning for, and negotiating improvements to, the children’s play park, partly with funds raised by FoQP. It also raises funds for other repairs, restoration and installations.
Currently, FoQP is aiming for charitable status and is negotiating with Glasgow City Council for City Park status and for a fairer share of resource. It is also hoped to increase the educational benefit and historic aspects of this historic park.
