WHPARA is a voluntary group of residents of Islington’s CA7 Whitehall Park Conservation Area. The Association was set up in 1999 and our committee meets regularly to discuss issues of local importance.

We hope to represent the interests of residents of the Conservation Area in matters that affect us all, such as planning, conservation and the environment. We liaise with local bodies, Islington Council and the police with the aim of making our area a safer, friendlier and more vibrant community, whilst conserving its best features. We organise occasional events and hope to encourage a spirit of involvement. The more members we have the better able we are to represent local opinion and circulate information, so why not join us now? Membership is free, so if you would like to be added to our mailing list, please subscribe to our mailing list.

Facebook Group

Our Facebook group is a forum for local news and information, communication between residents, recommendations, sharing and other fun things. It replaces the website forums, blog and local traders list, which are seldom used and, in the case of the latter, difficult to keep current and accurate. To join up go to facebook.com/groups/whitehallpark/ or click the Facebook icon at the top of this page.
