In 2019 the London Borough of Waltham Forest (LBWF) completed a £1.2m regeneration of an open space within the Lee Valley Regional Park creating Cheney Row Park. Local residents wanted to take things further, placing the Park at the heart of the community, so the Friends of Cheney Row Park (FoCRP) was born. We are dedicated to improving the Park, ensuring it meets local needs, and developing a wider sense of ownership and pride.
In partnership with LBWF and supported by TCV, we are committed to increasing biodiversity in the Park, making it a place for nature to thrive – a haven for birds, butterflies, insects, and small mammals, for trees, grasses, plants and flowers. By encouraging the natural environment to flourish, we hope our local community will flourish too.
We are open to all – join us on Facebook, sign up to our mailing list to hear about our next events, see what we’ve been up to on our news page, and share your photos with us on Instagram. Please do find out more about what we do and the history of the Park.
