FREE 1 Hour Long Sessions at Winton and Christchurch
BCP and The Parks Foundation are working together to improve some of our local parks. Three ‘Pilot Parks’ have been selected as part of their Future Parks Project with the aim to get more people (across all ages) visiting the parks as well as making physical improvements to the spaces.
The selected parks are:
- Alexandra Park in Parkstone
- Watermans Park in Somerford, Christchurch
- Winton Recreation Ground, Bournemouth
Following community consultation during 2020 they have created a Masterplan for each park, with short, medium and long-term goals. Currently they have funding to complete the short-term goals and are currently fundraising for the longer term plans.
Throughout the Pilot Parks Project they are looking at ways of managing and activating the parks to increase footfall, nature and the health and wellbeing of local residents. They will also be looking at how they can engage more volunteers in managing the space to ensure they leave a legacy and the parks continue to flourish in the future.
We are delighted to be teaming up with BCP Council and The Parks Foundation as they launch their Pilot Parks Project summer events calendar. As part of our free Trident Summer Program, we will be hosting free hour sessions of footie fun each week over 5 weeks of the school holidays.
On Wednesday afternoons, between 4-5pm, we will be at Winton Rec and on Thursday or Friday (varies weekly), between 4.30-5.30pm, we will be at Watermans Park in Christchurch. Aimed at children between the ages of 7-13, there is no charge to participate but booking in advance is required as numbers are strictly limited.
