Friends of Damson Parks

The Friends of Damson Parks (FoDP) voluntary group, established in 2012, aims to support and work closely with Solihull MBC in the maintenance, improvement and development of Damson Lane Park. This has involved fund-raising through quiz evenings, dog shows and many successful applications to funding bodies such as the National Lottery, Solihull Round Table, Veolia, Tesco Bags and a variety of other organisations. Well over £100,000 has been raised since the group’s formation.


FoDP also provides practical support to SMBC through the tidying of flower beds, trimming of hedges, and regular reporting of any issues in the park. FoDP is now raising funds to provide more accessible facilities for children with limited mobility in its play area, as well as a second sports wall. Volunteers are warmly welcomed to join the group and can view our Facebook page, Friends of Damson Parks, for more information or email:
