Merriman Park was handed back to Street Parish Council a couple of years ago. The Merriman Park Community Group was formed, and volunteers from this group are actively involved in fundraising and general maintenance of the park. The group using community involvement has a plan for how the park will look when funds allow it.

Lighting has been improved, new play equipment installed, tree stumps carved into fantastic sculptures, time capsules buried and the park tidied up.

Fundraising is an essential activity and donations are always welcome. The main event is the Merriman Park Funday in early September each year.
