Funding for Parks and Public Gardens (UK)

The next closing date for applications to the Parks for People funding programme is 12pm on the 29th February 2017. Through the programme, 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; and that the park management actively involves local people.

Recent awards include:

  • A £1.84 million grant to restore Castle Park in Cheshire back to its original historic landscape and to improve sports facilities, the play area, and cafe and kiosk facilities
  • A £3.5million grant to restore the historic landscaping and buildings, upgrading footpaths, entrances, furniture and signage of Brockwell Park which is located between Brixton, Norwood and Dulwich.
