Park for All

Park for All

Park for All is a 8 week project funded by Action Together Children and Young People Grant to promote health and wellbeing and reduce growing concern regarding anti-social behaviour in Coldhurst Park and Widdop Street Park. Using inspiring sports coaching methods and our knowledge of the area, we aim to bring together people and communities to create a safe, friendly and welcoming environment for all, whether it's to relax, improve general fitness or try something different we aim to make certain children and adults don't think twice about taking their children to parks we're focusing on.

We understand the growing intention in communities with the rise in anti-social behaviour and groups gathering in parks, with our recent study we found 70% of adults and children we spoken to feel 'scared' and/or 'unwelcome' in their local park while other feel the lack of provision held at parks is proving to deter children. 

What to expect from Park for All:

  • Multi-Sport provision including Archery, Basketball, Dodgeball, Football and lots more. 
  • Implement our 'Action Plan' to reduce anti-social behaviour, large gathering and littering. 
  • Create an welcoming environment for children and adults . 
  • Hold events to promote our 'Keep It Clean' campaign with lots of fun activities and stall for locals to enjoy. 
  • Free Fruits scheme to promote health and wellbeing in communities. 
  • DBS checked and qualified coaches to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all.
