A £2.7m Heritage Lottery funding bid for improvements to Poole Park
Opened in 1890, Poole Park is the most popular public open space in Poole
In August 2014 Borough of Poole and the Friends of Poole Park submitted a £2.7m bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for improvements to Poole Park.
Round One of the bid was a success, and the HLF awarded us the funding required to develop our initial ideas. We spent 2016 consulting widely with park users, neighbours, stakeholder groups and others in order to finalise detailed plans.
We are now preparing the final £2.7 million funding bid for submission on 28th February.
We hope to have a decision from the Heritage Lottery Fund in August. If successful the Delivery Phase will then be put into action (2017-2021).
