Children enjoyed outdoor learning in beautiful parkland as part of a community consultation day.

Community groups and families were invited to the day in Borde Hill's South Park on Saturday, May 13.

Visitors got the chance to find out more about the National Lottery heritage funded reinventing Borde Hill project and meet the team behind the plans.


The project aims to connect people with the “restorative power” of nature, while trialling some fun outdoor learning and wellbeing taster activities including seed sowing and a dinosaur trail around Robertsmere Lake. 

The garden’s design team were on hand to share details about the plans, which include an all year round ecolodge, a new network of accessible pathways, a community growing garden at Sugworth Farm and a programme of wellbeing and learning activities.

The South Park is the focus for this project, and features Grade II* heritage listed parkland, tranquil lakes, medieval grassland, and ancient woodland, making it an ideal setting for wellbeing and learning activities.
