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 and 360 degree views of the birds. Can you help us to reach our target of £200,000?
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.
We're fundraising 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. Let us know where you'd like one next!
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.
Contactless donation trial
We're trialing, prototyping and developing new contactless donation solutions in an outdoor environment.
As our society evolves to using contactless payments as the norm, we'll be exploring how people's behaviour may change to donate to charities. We'll be developing weather proof technology which will contain an independent power source.
Tuckton's speaking bench
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 such as Iford, Holdenhurst, Throop Mill and Muscliff.

Talk of the town, Stour Valley - NOW COMPLETED
A Pocket Park for Kinson - NOW COMPLETED
Parks breathe life into our communities as precious spaces for wildlife, meeting friends, exercise and play.
Pocket parks may be small but they do the same job as big green spaces! With government grant funding, we've helped the local community to develop the new Kinson Village Green.
