About

July 14, 2016

If we created the very best parks and open spaces on earth, would your friends, family, children and grandchildren thank you? Would they lead a better life? A healthier life? A happier life? A longer life?

We exist to raise funds and awareness to support Bournemouth's parks, gardens and open spaces for now and future generations.

A little about us

The Bournemouth Parks Foundation is a small but perfectly formed charity devoted to enhancing Bournemouth's parks gardens and green spaces for everyone to enjoy, independent from Bournemouth Borough Council. We go above and beyond our parks normal maintenance transforming them into captivating spaces in which to relax, learn, exercise and play. 

What do we do?

We are an independent charitable organisation founded in January 2015. Although Bournemouth Borough Council has overall responsibility to maintain and develop Bournemouth's parks we work alongside them with the aim to raise much needed funds for improvement and enhancements above what the council provide. 

What do we support?

We get our teeth into the following key themes: 

  • Childrens play
  • Conservation and wildlife
  • Art and culture
  • Horticulture
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Sport
  • Educational grants for apprentices and 
  • Support for local community groups

These are all vitally important to enhance our parks and further attract residents and visitors to enjoy them.
