Friends of Longford Park began as a group of enthusiasts from the Longford CAN group in 2003. The enthusiastic volunteers began by organising (jointly with the council) two big events in the park to attract local residents and publicise the park as a wonderful community space. The events were the highly successful Longford Fayre and the firework night display. These events ran for many years and attracted hundreds of visitors to the park. The Longford Fayre committee became the Friends of Longford Park and joined the council in improving the park by feeding into consultations on facilities, volunteering on the ground and by applying for external funding. The group is still active today and always welcomes new volunteers. They promote participation and enthusiasm from young people and have been instrumental in attracting the Magic Mile and Awards for the Park.
