Welcome to the Friends of Coney Hall Park webpage

The Friends of Coney Hall Group formed in the summer of 2007 with the aim of preserving and enhancing the environment of Coney Hall Park and encouraging greater use of the park by the local community. Our achievements so far include several successful social events, the award of two grants for the purchase of playground equipment and community gardening and bulb planting.

The Friends of Coney Hall Park welcome you to join us for our friendly informal meetings, events and working parties.

Details of forthcoming meetings and events can be found on the notice board beneath the park flag near to Parklands nursery.

Working with Bromley Council

The Friends work closely with Bromley Council and have been able to request the replacement of the horse and tractor rockers in the playground and this has been done. A notice board has been erected beneath the flag near the nursery. The Friends were involved in the installation of the skate ramp and continue to seek to work with the Council for further enhancements to the park. 

Grants Awarded

The Friends were successful with several funding applications and have therefore been able to purchase a considerable amount of new playground equipment for the park, namely a large climbing frame for older children, an activity fun run for all ages plus a rather unusual stand-on see saw, suitable for roughly ages 6 and above.

We were also able to plant a shade tree in the play area and to get a commemorative picnic table installed there. 

Our Annual Events

Family Fun in the Park

This annual event arranged by the Friends takes place typically in September in partnership with other local organisations. The activities offered at the event were free of charge and included bouncy castles, climbing frames, children's games, tug-of-war, rounders, refreshments and performances by local dance troops. Families brought picnics and simple refreshments were provided by the Friends of the Park volunteers and the event has been well attended each year. 

Carols by Torchlight in the Park

Warming drinks, mince pies and carols in conjunction with St John’s Church and Wickham Common Primary School, this has proved to be a popular family event, which is held annually in early December.

Gardening in the Park

Through the summer there are regular gardening parties organized by the Friends that make a real and immediate impact on the park. A new flower bed has been dug near to Parklands Nursery and bulbs planted around trees in the area surrounding the play ground.

We have planted a willow arch and a wildflower area in the park and from time to time we have gardening mornings to tend to them.
