Friends of Grosvenor & Hilbert Park

The Friends of Grosvenor & Hilbert Park (FoGH) was launched in 2011 to support the council bid for Heritage Lottery Funding.

This process is reaching it's conclusion as the Lottery funded work is completed and we will soon have the benefit of the best playground in Tunbridge Wells as well as a proper cafe and other major improvements to the park. During this period the Friends have gone from strength to strength promoting the use of the Park and organising events.

Grosvenor Park (also known as Grosvenor Rec) is the oldest public park in Tunbridge Wells opening in 1889 and extended to include Hilbert Park in 1931. With a diverse range of activities and wildlife habitats it is truly "The People's Park".

For more information see our About us page.

Winter Events 2017

There's always a lot going on in the park and especially so this spring.

Some events have been organised by the Friends, some are Kent High Weald volunteer events and some are Lottery funded and have been organised by Community Engagement Officer Steff D'Agorne.

Details are available on our events page and the full list is available as a PDF. Download this, print it and stick it on the fridge door.
