If you haven’t been towards St Agnes Gate (at the bottom of the west side of the Park) in a while, now is the time to do so! 


The Outdoor Classroom space has raised beds, a shed and a gardener! The space is designed for park users to get involved with gardening and an educational space for schools to learn about nature and growing projects.


We are open to all on Saturdays from 10.30 – 1.30pm and on Wednesdays from 3 – 7.30pm, and you don’t need experience to come and do some planting or pruning, so pop in and have a go!
