We're committed to the past, present and future of Bournemouth's parks and green spaces but we need your help! See some of our exciting projects below - every donation makes a difference!
rebuilding Bournemouth's Aviary
If you've ever been down to Bournemouth Gardens and taken a stroll through Pine Walk you may well have discovered Bournemouth's famous bird sanctuary.
We’re fundraising to replace the aviary with a beautiful new structure allowing greater flight space for the birds. We’ve raised £88,000 in donations and pledges. Please help us to reach our target of £200,000.
West Cliff Green Restoration
Help us to restore and re-open this historic shelter, in the style and decoration that it would have originally had.
This ‘Victorian clifftop shelter’ forms part of Bournemouth’s coastal heritage. The local community are coming together to raise funds to restore the hut to its original condition and appearance. The views from this location are stunning.
We are saving to trial dog-friendly drinking fountains in some of Bournemouth's parks.
If these doggy drinking fountains prove to be a success, we will aim to raise funds to be able to introduce them to many other parks across our town. We're currently raising funds for a drinker at Hengistbury Head.
stour valley sculpture trail
This exciting and ambitious project will create an arts and sculpture trail between the coastline at Hengistbury Head, along the river Stour, up to Kinson.
Visitors will encounter unexpected wildlife such as the otter, brown hare and barn owl and discover places of interest such as Iford, Holdenhurst, Throop Mill, Muscliff and beyond.
Parks in Mind
This project will create volunteering opportunities in our amazing parks to improve people's mental/physical health and reduce social isolation through participating in parks activities.
Volunteers will benefit from improved health and wellbeing, personal development, confidence, sense of achievement and CV enhancement.
Talk of the town, Stour Valley - NOW COMPLETED
A Pocket Park for Kinson - NOW COMPLETED
Parks and green spaces breathe life into our communities as precious spaces for wildlife, meeting friends, exercise and play.
Pocket parks are small green spaces but they do the same job as big green spaces! With the government grant funding, the Foundation has helped the local community to develop the centrally located Kinson Village Green to make it more appealing to everyone and wildlife.
