About Friends of Longford Park

Longford Park, Trafford’s largest municipal park is located in Stretford and borders Chorlton cum Hardy on its Eastern side.

Friends of Longford Park are a volunteer group of local people that work with Trafford Council to improve and promote the park as a vibrant local facility for all age groups, helping it remain as a valued and popular asset for the community

Some of our past achievements and current activities:

  • Run the monthly health walks;
  • Established the park as a cycling hub;
  • Set up and run the community allotments;
  • Organised regular work parties to maintain the wildlife garden;
  • Since the privatisation of the park workforce, now under the care of Amey, we have provided regular feedback on their performance to both Amey and Trafford Council.
  • Collaborate with other Trafford based ‘Friends of’ groups.
  • Got funding for the installation of bicycle/scooter racks around the park;
  • Collaborated with DUFA to establish an 18 hole disc golf course in Longford Park;
  • Brought outdoor theatre to Longford Park; and
  • Had tree stumps carved in the park.
