The playground is now open after being refurbished by Bury Council. Come down and enjoy the new equipment and have a brew in the Tea Room on Saturday and Sunday, when the toilets are also open.


The first bandstand event of 2024 on the 5th May was a fantastic day led by Haslingden and Helmshore Brass Band.

The next event is Sunday 7th July with local band Shoehorn. Further details on the events page with future events.

Ramsbottom Festival will also take place in Nuttall Park on Saturday 20th July and Sunday 21st July. This is being organised by Ramsbottom Rotary and further details can be found on their Facebook page

Who we are

The Friends of Nuttall Park are a group of volunteers who help to keep the park tidy and through raising funds improve the park by adding playground equipment and plants. We mainly promote our events via our Facebook Page.

We are always looking for new volunteers - contact us

Friends of Nuttall Park volunteers get involved in many ways ; Some of the volunteers help with most of the activities, and some only want to be involved with one activity.

  • The Gardening Group meets on Tuesday afternoons 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. March to November to tend¬†for flowerbeds and the wildflower patch, as well as general tidying of the park.
  • The Tea Room and toilets are open on Saturday and Sunday, times vary according to volunteers, but is usuallly 11:00 - 3:00.
  • Task Days are held throughout the year, when a number of volunteers meet to clear balsam, paint and clean the furniture in the park, tidy leaves, e.t.c.
  • Events such as the Lantern Parade are held to provide a community day out. Extra volunteers are required for these events.



We have decided that we will not be hiring out the base in 2024.

This is partly due to the small space available, and partly because the Tea Room is open on weekends subject to volumteers being available.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact us.
