The Heritage Lottery Fund has approved our Poole Park Life £2.7m funding bid!

The HLF trustees met at the end of June and supported the bid that has been developed over the last couple of years, reporting that they think it is a very strong project. We now move into a four-year long Delivery Phase of making improvements to Poole Park, further engaging in new activities with park users, local communities and stakeholders.

A massive thank you to everyone who has been involved – whether you completed a questionnaire, attended a guided walk, chatted with us over a cup of tea, organised an event, fund-raised or paid to upload a photo to the Photomosaic – you played a part and helped us deliver this for the “People’s Park”, thank you.


If you are wondering what happens after this fantastic news, then please take a look at the ‘Six Project Themes’ pages as a reminder of the range of improvements across the park. What comes first? Removing the temporary bridge over the sluice channel and repairing the brick piers, but not until the end of the year as there is further planning and preparation to do first.

We will update these pages as things develop, and include a calendar of works and activities so it is easy to track progress.

We continue to welcome your interest and input into the project, even though consultation on the project is closed, you can find our contact details at the bottom of the page.

The last couple of years …

It’s a YES!
