Welcome to the website of the Friends of Cator Park and Alexandra Recreation Ground.
We were formed in February 2008 in response to an appeal by Bromley Council at an Open Meeting organised by them and held in the Holy Trinity Centre. Many of us on our committee had already been concerned at the neglectful state of both parks and wished to do something about it. We have been trying to do just that for the past nineyears and have won many awards. But we need your help so do join us!
Our events cover November bub-planting in both parks; summer events, including a Bat Walk in Cator Park on June 8 from 9.00pm led by Ishpi Blatchley and a Music in the Park event with the Beckenham Concert Band on Sunday July 30 in Alexandra Recreation Ground. We also have a twice-monthly gardening working partry and a Carols in the Park in December.
We are unusual in that we oversee the well-being of two parks, not one. So we have double the work to do and have to make sure there are fair-dos for both parks. So far we have achieved a lot.

Our aims, as you see, are to bring some life back to both parks. We are conscious of the need to maintain a ‘green’ environment in both parks. Our Mission Statement encapsulates this. Over the years we have won People for Parks awards for our efforts. If you join us you will receive a seasonal newsletter. This website will keep you posted with all our news, both past and present.
