About the Friends of Burgess Park

Our priorities

  • Wildlife and nature conservation – the current focus is on woodlands
  • Planning/licencing applications in and around the park – including large events/filming
  • Buildings in the park – especially repair and future use of the old library bath and washhouse (OLBAW) Wells Way and the council’s review of BBQs

The Friends of Burgess Park are an association of people and other interested groups who are concerned to protect, promote and enhance an important, inner-city London park.
