Celebration, Education, Recreation: A Park for People


We are an active community group committed to respecting the heritage of Castle Green, making more use of the park for today’s community and improving and protecting it for future generations.

Sunday, 27th November saw the last event in our calendar – the Friends of Castle Green Christmas Fair.  A great time was had by all, with plenty of mulled wine & cake, good street food and the chance to get some of that Christmas shopping out of the way.

Consult our Diary of Events on the lefthand side to make a note of those special dates next year.  We’ll keep it up to date as more details come in.

The Pavilion is open for business for meetings & events, there is a fully equipped catering kitchen and the River Room and Artists’ Room directly overlook the River Wye. There are regular yoga and tai chi’ classes plus a lively youth music programme with the Music Pool’s ‘Livewire’ programme.

IT Support: The Learning Box@Brierley Court (just off Turner Street) is a new community resource centre, within walking distance of Castle Green.  IT beginners’ courses, lots of computers to drop-in and practise on and very helpful personnel.
