Friends of Westgate Park

The Friends group is made up of enthusiastic people, passionate about Westgate Park and the natural environment. 

You can just turn up to our regular work days:

  • every Monday and Tuesday - come for as long as you like between 8.30am and 3pm,
  • every third Sunday in the month – come anytime from 9am until 4pm, or
  • check out our monthly program of activities. 

We can tailor the tasks to suit your interests and physical capabilities. These include:

  • planting trees, shrubs, climbers, ground covers and wildflowers,
  • preparing garden beds for planting by spreading mulch,
  • fostering good plant growth by weeding and pruning,
  • assisting in our plant nursery with potting and seed ‘cleaning’,
  • collecting seeds,
  • monitoring water quality in the lakes and lagoons,
  • helping record species in our monthly bird surveys.
