Friends Group

The Friends of Dainewell Park have been very active since their formation in 2012, their vision is to provide a welcoming environment to enhance and benefit the local community, which is a haven of nature, scent and colour and makes available leisure facilities to encourage a range of healthy, educational and fun activities within a clean and safe environment. The group arrange a number of events and activities throughout the year and can be contacted at friendsofdainewellpark@gmail.com.  They also have a facebook page and a twitter feed.


Dainewell Park has previously been known by many different names and, prior to the Friends group taking action, was an under-developed area of green space.  The Friends group have carried out a lot of consultation with local people and, following discussions with Trafford’s Greenspaces team and Red Rose Forest, have agreed a strategy and associated annual plans for the development of the park.  Please email the Friends group for more information.
