Hardie Park is a community led family park and open green space. Local residents took ownership after a period of neglect with the guidance of local resident Rob Groves in order to develop and enhance the area for the benefit of the local community.
Friends of Hardie Park are a Registered Charity and Community Interest Company and a not-for-profit organisation.
Over a period of years the site has developed enormously and is now run by our Board of Trustees (since Oct 2020) with a passionate team of staff and volunteers.
Opening 7 days a week the facility provides a cafe, toilets, play facility, skate park, a varied events programme and a community food project. Surplus supermarket food is collected daily by volunteers in our van and offered to the community on a take what you need, donate if you can basis. The cafe is also used as a base for many groups with clubs and activities for all generations
