Four Parks Friends Association

This Friends group is actively involved in improving the four central parks of Borehamwood – Aberford, Clarendon, Maxwell Hillside and Meadow Parks.   Judith Sear, the former Chairperson of the Association, said: "The Parks in Borehamwood are a source of pleasure and relaxation for the whole community, from young to old. The Four Parks Association want to make sure that there is something for everyone to enjoy in our parks."
