Youth Activities at Victoria Park
Victoria Park is getting a new lease of life thanks to a project grant of more than £3m from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund. Alongside the grant, the rest of the project is being funded by a mixture of Section 106 contributions from local developments, direct contributions from Ashford Borough Council and in-kind commitment from organisations such as the Friends of Victoria Park and other community groups.
One of the main focuses of the project is to provide engaging activities for young people and schools, giving young people a sense of ownership and pride over the park. It will also shape how the park will look and how children and young people will be able to interact with it in the future. The project activities will also give young people the opportunity to learn more about the heritage and nature of the park, as well as contribute to its conservation. Activities will include a sculpture trail, social media takeovers, bench designing, music making, resources for schools, and much more.
You can keep up to date with youth activities and park news as well as join in with art challenges and online events on the Victoria Park social media accounts. Follow us using the links below.
