West Park Friends Group

West Park Friends Group was established in 2007. The group has a core of around 20 members who attend meetings on a regular basis. The aims of the group are to improve the park and its facilities and improve communication between parks users, the Council and other stake holders, such as the Police. The group have had a number of successes including obtaining £35,000 of external funding for a Green Gym together with major input into a number of projects such as the planet garden.

Tree Trail

Over the last few years, a Tree Trail has been incorporated into the park for the pleasure of visitors. This mile-long trail will take approximately one hour to complete.

Tree Planting on the Park

A number of new trees, all native to the UK, have been planted along the main avenue of West Park as part of a programme of landscaping and re-planting at the Long Eaton park.

The new trees were planted to replace the over-mature poplar trees, which had to be felled after an Independent survey [PDF 57KB] found that they had become brittle and dangerous having gone well past their natural lifespan of 60 - 80 years.
