Valley Gardens, located in the heart of Harrogate, is famous for its beauty and is highly regarded throughout the United Kingdom. The Friends group was formed in order to offer the public the opportunity to support this valuable park. We work in partnership with Harrogate Borough Council to guide the Park’s future use and development. We are a registered charity number 1148369. Our President is Martin Fish.
