The ‘Green Heart’ of Kingswood

South Gloucestershire Council and The Friends of Kingswood Park have successfully secured development funding of over £120,000 from The National Lottery Heritage Fund in the first phase of an exciting £2.5m project. It aims to restore Kingswood Park so it forms the green ‘heart’ of Kingswood.

The main aims of the Kingswood Park restoration project are to:

• encourage more and wider range of people, voluntary groups and schools to use and celebrate the park heritage with more events and activities
• improve facilities for all including new play equipment, better access and toilets
• look at opportunities to provide a new park refreshment facility
• restore paths, walls, masonry and other features
• share the heritage of the park and research its history
• contribute to the regeneration of Kingswood Town Centre
• improve the park landscape and biodiversity
• make park management carbon neutral
