We plan on stewarding the gate between 11.30 and 11.50am to allow parking access – gates are normally locked for public access. Note outside these hours the barrier is locked and street parking only is permitted.

Let’s Play and Friends of Tividale Park are holding an event Saturday 23rd from 11.30am to 2pm. Great Weather, Tea and Coffees, Leisurely walk, learn about some history and a bit of nature. You can park in the park between 11.30 and 11.55 (normally locked) as our volunteers will be marshalling the gate. Meet by the Toddlers play area as the new Community Centre not yet ready so we will have gazebos and chairs set out instead. Its free! Everyone welcome.

In 2016, The Friends group installed Bird and Bat Boxes as well as insect homes in the park. In 2019 we are holding a park walk event and conduct a survey to formally map their locations having lost a few trees and bird boxes in 2018. Our bug hotels were installed by Princes Trust. Our Birdboxes were purchased via Postcode lottery and made.

This is a free family day so came along for a walk around the park and get a different perspective! We have the Let’s Play team for some awesome FREE fun activities, crafts and games including den building, scavenger hunts and challenges.

Establishing a Facility to use a community centre in the park (grey building) has been a long term project, and delivery of the facility happened Monday 11th March.

When electrical wired up and set up, regular community events will be based here. We plan on setting up gazebos and chairs should we not yet have full access on the day.

Painting the Exterior. – Designs and stories from local residents will be put into an overall design which will then be transferred onto the outside of the building by Groundwork volunteer artists.
