We urgently need to join together and raise £30,000 to kickstart work to reach the 200,000 people across Bristol & Bath confined to concrete. We have so far raised £5888.50 towards our goal.


Reimagining Parks

Reimagining Parks emails 1

With cost-of-living and mental health crises, and global environmental emergency, it’s a no-brainer that more people need to access parks, which are free to enjoy and transformational for health and nature.

So we are marking our fifth anniversary with the launch of our biggest campaign yet, Reimagining Parks.

We need your support to make real change and show just how important access to green space is.


200,000 people shut out

Reimagining parks

Our work and research over the last five years has evidenced that the key factors preventing people from using parks are:

  • physical accessibility (including entrances, surfaces, toilets or poorly introduced habitats)
  • personal safety (for example lighting or blocked lines of sight)
  • mental wellbeing (such as not feeling able to due to anxiety).

We know it’s a similar story all over the country. By supporting Reimagining Parks, you will help smash down the barriers and help one in three local people benefit from green space too.


With your support


By May 2025 you will help:

  • Create an exemplar park redesigned by a woman: Brickfields Park, Bath
  • Host regular sensory walks, supported play sessions, family activities and accessible gardening in every neighbourhood in Bristol and Bath for 2,000 people
  • Expand our in-nature mental health therapy service Roots to Wellbeing to 500 people a year through sessions in two extra areas of health deprivation, and by introducing out of hours activities for people in employment or education.

Leading the change

Hope 2

Our ambition is for everyone in Bristol and Bath to have a park that is accessible to them within ten-minutes of where they live, work or study.

The people shut out and who we will reach with your support are:

  • Disabled people
  • unpaid carers
  • women and girls
  • minority ethnic groups
  • people in low-income/disadvantaged areas.

Your donation will help us demonstrate how small improvements can deliver huge impact for the people who should but do not benefit.
