The Friends of Cusworth Park was formed in 2006 to support museum and park staff in renovating and rejuvenating Cusworth Park.

Since then we have enjoyed a varied program of talks, demonstrations and events as well as contributing to the reopening of Lady Isabella’s Garden, a former Edwardian Rose Garden immediately to the west of the Hall.

Practical assistance in the form of ‘hands-on’ gardening fund raising has been provided, and also the benefit of a dedicated band of conservation volunteers, who have literally got to grips with the vegetation, are together making a vital contribution to improving the park for the local community and visitors to the area.

The objectives of The Friends of Cusworth Park

The objectives of the Society shall be to bring together the different groups of visitors to the park, promote education in horticultural, historic and environmental aspects of the site and to provide a forum for views and comments. It will provide practical support for the work of Cusworth Park.

If you would like to join the Friends of Cusworth Park, pick up a leaflet from the Hall and fill in the membership form.


Get involved with the continuing restoration of Cusworth Park by volunteering in the Park.  The Volunteer sessions include a range of conservation, restoration and habitat management projects in order to restore and enhance Cusworth Park's heritage and ecological value. Suitable footwear and clothing recommended, and bring a packed lunch (alternatively visit the tea room). All training and protective equipment will be provided. Sessions are on alternate Tuesdays and Thursdays
