Friends of the Dean

It’s easy to get more involved with what’s going on at Dean Castle Country Park.

If you love being outdoors whatever the weather, learning new skills and doing practical work, then being a Friend of the Dean could be the volunteer role for you. It's a great opportunity to make a difference by keeping the Park looking great & encouraging wildlife to flourish.

Help us make Dean Castle Country Park even better.
