Parks Volunteer Scheme

Volunteering in your local park or green space can be a very rewarding experience. You can learn new skills, meet new people and get a great sense of achievement knowing that your involvement has made a noticeable improvement to the borough's parks, green spaces, the environment and the community. 


There are a number of active volunteers in Slough who work either in groups or as individuals with activities and tasks, suitable for all level of abilities, carrying out work as varied as:

  • planting and maintaining flower beds
  • seeding
  • pruning
  • weeding
  • maintaining ponds
  • running a variety of walks, events, fun activities and much more.

Many of the skills learnt whilst volunteering can be transferred to other voluntry work and can be useful when seeking employment.

How to join

If you have some spare time or interested in looking after our parks and gardens, we are currently seeking volunteers at Herschel Park.
