The Parks Foundation

The charity enhances parks across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole so that people and wildlife can flourish.

They are a small but perfectly formed independent charity devoted to enhancing Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole’s parks and green spaces for everyone to enjoy. Parks breathe life into our towns, providing our communities with precious spaces to get together, exercise and play.

Join them each month for seasonal activities in your local park. From mindfulness and crafts to nature discovery and play – there’s something for everyone.

How do they do it?

Creating inspirational parks that improve people’s health and wellbeing, reconnect people with nature and bring diverse communities together.
