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.

Heritage Open Day

A first for 2016, the Pavilion was open as part of the Heritage Open Days weekend  on Sunday 11th September from 2pm to 4pm.    Historian David Whitehead with Amanda Attfield and Mark Hubbard of the Friends were on hand to relate the history of the Pavilion and to explain how the Friends of Castle Green hope to restore and develop the building and Castle Green in the Hereford community.    A display of photographs & documents was set up and some 20-30 people came during the afternoon, including  Jon Eisel, who donated several booklets on the history of both building & the Green, for which many thanks indeed.

The Annual General Meeting is on Thursday, 20th October – see the Latest News flash – and the Christmas Fair is on Sunday, 27th November. The stall registration form and further information are on the News page

Other dates on Castle Green in 2016 are listed in the Diary of Events on the left.  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.
