A local group of volunteers who work with Blackpool Council to make improvements on the park. Our group was inaugurated on the 8th of August 2006. The volunteers care about the park and its use by the local community. We hold fundraising events to help make improvements, such as our annual Community Fun Day and local fundraising also takes place. We are a small local registered charity and donations are always welcome. We run sports coaching sessions for youngsters such as the Crown Green Bowling sessions; from May to September. We also hold Park Tidy Up/Planting days. We have recently created a Community Garden and hold regular Community Gardening sessions on a Wednesday and Friday morning – weather dependent.
