Welcome to the new Friends of Castle Park website!

Welcome to the new Friends of Castle Park website! We will be using this website to share information on the lottery funded project, Castle Park, and to share information on ways to get involved and help create a park for all of the community.

At the start of 2017, an initial £250,000 was awarded through the Parks for People programme (part of the Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund) to enable East Herts Council and their partners, including Bishop’s Stortford Town Council and Hertfordshire County Council’s Countryside Management Service, to develop detailed plans to improve Castle Park. These were submitted at the end of August 2018, as a bid for a further £2m to enhance Castle Park.  The outcome is expected in Dec 2018 – Jan 2019.

The Friends of Castle Park are always looking for new members – get in touch if you would like to join us.
