Who we are

Friends of Locke Park


There are 47 acres of Barnsley’s Locke Park only a mile from Barnsley’s town centre, with gardens, trees and open grass areas, an historic tower, bowling greens, games and play areas, and a café.

Friends of Locke Park are a volunteer group working together to improve the facilities in the Park and to engage with all the community in events and participation. We are involved in a range of projects and activities:

  • Gardening (weather dependent)
  • Helping at Events (7 events per year)
  • Car Boots Sales (3 events per year)
  • Opening of Locke Park Tower to visitors 
  • Biodiversity, ensuring the maintenance and improvement of our wide range of plants and wildlife
  • Fitness

We currently have the Black Heart Rollers using the park.

All groups are welcome.

Locke Park Tower is open to visitors on the first Sunday of every Month 2pm - 4pm.

Park Run and Junior Park Run is on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

The Friends meet every first Tuesday of the month from 6pm - 8pm in the Café,
