This park was created by the developers of Heatherton and was known as Richmond Close Open Space.


Friends of L Parks have held several tree and bulb planting sessions with the help of pupils from Derby Moor College and Griffe Field Primary School


We are gradually improving the biodiversity by planting more species of native and wild-life friendly trees, shrubs, and wild-flowers.

FOLPs holds a working party on the third Saturday of each month from 10am for a couple of hours. You are very welcome to join us - especially if you live in the Pastures Hill and Heatherton areas.

Watch the notice boards for details.
