Parks for People (UK)

Local Authorities as well as not for profit organisations that own public parks and gardens can apply for grants of between £100,000 and £5 million for the regeneration of parks and public gardens (including squares, walks and promenades).

To be considered for funding, applicants need to show that:

  • The community values the park as part of their heritage
  • The parks meet local social, economic and environmental needs
  • The park management actively involves local people.

Previous awards include:

A grant of 1,917,800 for the restoration of historic structures and improvements to the landscape of Raphael Park in Havering, London and a grant of £3,238,000 to Bute Park, a Grade I listed park in Cardiff, that was restored in order to protect and enhance one of Cardiff’s most cherished and popular attractions.

The next closing date for applications is the 1st September 2016.
